In the last year, I let myself down a little by not blogging as much as I wanted to. I’m hoping this year I will blog a bit more often. The issue I sometimes find is there are so many decent blogs out there, writing something that is already out there feels like I’m just copying someone else’s idea. I also don’t write a blog about really simple things, that took me a minute to work out. If it took me a moment, is it really worth blogging about? Then there is the time to write the blog, I like to provide code, screenshots and test my walkthroughs to ensure they work and make sense. (I still have one blog that I haven’t finished yet, I started in August!)
Anyway, thank you for reading my blog and here are a list of the most popular blog posts in 2019. (I’m surprised from the list that people still go to them, as they are quite old now, dating back to 2013! Only one of them was written in 2019.)
How hard is it to write a good opening line? Been staring at this for a while now.
Ok, my name is Paul Matthews. I’m a father of one beautiful daughter, and live with my partner. We have no pets, and live in a 3 bed house. I’m a PC gamer and my favourite game is Battlefield 3. My gaming tag is Cann0nF0dder (the o’s are zeros) which is partly why my wordpress domain name is cann0nf0dder. Please feel free to add me as a friend.
Why am I now writing a blog? Within our company we have a department blog which I am a main contributor too. It is a valuable source of information from something simple to something technical, but it’s not accessible from outside of the company firewall. It is such a useful tool, I decided to create my own one.
