2011 seems like as good a year as any to start a blog. Until now I’ve resisted the urge to start a blog - while I do have an opinion on most things I’ve never felt that I’d have to publish it. This hasn’t changed. Still I want to give blogging a try - for two reasons: First of all I want to improve my writing - both writing in general and especially in English. The second reason is that I want to have a go at creating an online home for myself. I had registered the domain lank.es in 2008 and have been using it for email for a while now. Time to add a website.
