The first thing you do in coding. Why not the first thing in blogging?
This is not my first blog but it is my first blog in a very long time. The first iteration of keeganlarson.com was driven by the desire to establish a brand and learn a bit about coding along the way. My desire was to publish as much as possible without focusing on any niche topic. I feel that it was more about talking than providing real substance or value. “SEO” was a bigger deal that providing quality content.
This iteration will be different. I want this to be about exploration, learning, and discovery. I am certainly not an expert but I definitely like the learning process that goes into it. I have interests in data, science, business, science, history and much more. I’ll probably touch on all of those at some point.
It will take some time to find my voice. I have not written long form in quite some time. It seems everything now gets distilled into a short email or power point presentation. Bear with me if you come across these in the early days. They’ll get better, I promise.
Where this is going, I don’t know. To paraphrase South Park: “Step 1: start a blog, Step 3: takeover the world.” Step 2 is going to be an adventure.
