New Blog Concept – Technical Tips Each Week

I’ve been thinking a lot about my lack of blogging, and I’ve decided to take on a quest that will make sure I do a better job blogging here. Because I am a ‘Jack of all Trades, Master of None’, within the Open Source Community, it’s been apparent to me that I’ve a lot of good practice mucking up. Because of this, I learn something new all the time.

So I came up with this idea, a very quaint, probably mostly recycled idea of blogging about technical tips I’ve come across in my travels. Simple tips to help the new and the experienced with different “geeky” solutions I’ve discovered over the years. Sometimes I feel like I don’t know anything, and I have a simple solution to provide, other times I feel like I’ve got some great information to share.

Either way I look at it, both types of solutions will help. Here’s my thoughts on why:

I am most definitely sure that there are many people out there who blog just like this, so how is mine going to be different? It isn’t really, mostly my experiences will just be different than others, possibly providing a better/different perspective on a problem. I believe that by providing a detailed answer to a problem I’ve had, others can truly benefit.

To help me with my goal, there are a couple of things I’d like to ask the community who reads this blog:

  1. If you find my solution to be in error, please post a comment and let me know. I’ll fix it, and even give you credit for the repair.
  2. If you like my solutions, please link back to me from your site. It’ll help others find the solution too.
  3. If you have the solution on your blog, please provide me a link in a comment. I’ll occasionally go back through old posts and add links which are useful.

Please feel free to let me know your thoughts on my plan. I’d like to hear of some good tech problems others have had as well.
