I’ve been working on website projects for the last five years, but until now I never felt the slightest desire to create my own website. Of course, I’d love to have one … but having a website means keeping it updated regularly and looking after it … it is a responsibility.
I attended a two day Scrum training course last week, and for the first time I really wanted a blog. I wanted to go home and record my experiences as I tried to implement all of the things we learned on the course. I wanted a place to share my thoughts, not just on Scrum, but on anything and everything. I wanted to hear back from other people who might have the time and inclination to read my ramblings and have an opinion. I’ve joined the discussion forum but I wanted more than that – I wanted a space that’s mine. So here it is: my first personal website. It’s a funny choice of domain name, so if you’re remotely curious you can read why I chose the domain name spikethepoodle.com. I have a few things to say, so I’ll try and organise my thoughts and write some blog entries. Since my personal preference is for short, snappy blog entries when I’m the reader, I’ll try not to subject others to my endless ramblings. If you do want to hear those, you just have have to feed me beer.
