I'm not usually one to hold down a blog. This year is the year I start taking it seriously... starting February.
I'm doing this to organise my thoughts, improve my writing skill and showcase my work. I don't do a lot of content writing at all, anywhere, and it's something I actually miss from school. Also, it's nice to have a single place I can put all my design and development work.
Another reason I've built my own blog is to keep ownership of my content. I think we're about to see a big shift in people moving back to self-hosted blogging platforms, like before Medium and Facebook. And there will likely be a resurgence in RSS readers, or something better, to consolidate these.
I suppose I'm going to write about what I'm interested in, things I learn, maybe a guides and tutorials (likely just for myself).
My partner and I are looking at moving to a different country this year. I might post some tasteful travel content, but I don't want this to be a travel blog.
Why jack.kiwi? I thought it sounded cool. And quite a lot of people actually call me Kiwi Jack.
