A first post

What does one write in a first post? A new beginning? A fresh start? The first step? It has always been hard for me to start a new project. Be it an article a large work of programming or cleaning my room. It is hard to start. The first step is always the hardest. It is easy to proceed if the project is interesting enough.

The question that begs to be answered with this project is why? I already have a journal, so why create a separate blog? What do I hope to achieve? How will this be different? Do I plan on maintaining two publishing outlets?

My journal - Blue Swiss Cheese, or The blues side of the moon - is, and remains to be a journal of what I've been up to. A collection of writings aimed at the community nature of livejournal. A space to jot down informal thoughts, birthday wishes, opinions and reports of meetings with interesting persons.

On the other side of the moon, I hope to publish articles of a more technical or documentary nature. I'd like to move my restaurant reviews here, my series on web standards, and my travelogues too. I'd like to categorise articles, although I'm still not sure how. This space will have more articles rather than posts, language will, I hope, be more formal, or less casual at the least.

Well, so much for an editorial, if I may call this one. Let the writing begin.
