Hello! As I wrote in a post on the relaunch of my site, the main goal for the new version was to ease the process of adding new entries. However, beyond the technical side I completely forgot about what exactly I wanted to write in that easy and simple way.

Until today everything¬†I published on¬†my¬†site could be¬†divided to¬†two categories: ‚Äúissues‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúexperiments‚ÄĚ. In¬†‚Äúissues‚ÄĚ I¬†tried to¬†publish mostly objective things with all the proper arguments and thoughts went through a¬†lot of¬†thinking. Maybe those things could be¬†called ‚Äúarticles‚ÄĚ, but¬†I don‚Äôt like this word. In¬†‚Äúexperiments‚ÄĚwent all those things like prototypes for different interesting things, made mostly just for fun, not as¬†production solutions, almost without any descriptions whatsoever. While now I¬†see a¬†bit of¬†sense in¬†describing things (like¬†I did with my¬†experiment¬†on rotated text), I¬†still don‚Äôt like the style of¬†step-by-step tutorials that describe every letter here and there. So, those things¬†I publish¬†as ‚Äúexperiments‚ÄĚ couldn‚Äôt go¬†into ‚Äúissues‚ÄĚ.

So, why did I made it easy to write posts for my site? It’s because I wanted to write more often. Not to publish articles or experiments (not that often for those), but to maintain a blog. Not to post objective, complicated things, not for some weird experiments with hardcore code, but to have a platform where I could share something simple, something casual maybe. Simple ideas, thoughts, critics for stuff that’s going on in the today’s frontend world.

When it¬†was hard to¬†publish a¬†new post on¬†a¬†site¬†I didn‚Äôt thought of¬†it¬†as¬†a¬†blog, but then¬†I came to¬†it¬†and remade my¬†site from scratch, but in¬†a¬†process¬†I, again, forgot why¬†I did all those things to¬†Jekyll and myself¬†‚ÄĒ forgot that¬†I wanted it¬†there for the short and simple posts. So, after the relaunch of¬†a¬†site there were not that much of¬†new posts, but at¬†the same time there were a¬†lot of¬†drafts and sketches for them. I¬†forgot that you could post things not polished to¬†the shining, but short, rough and unfinished posts (and I‚Äôll complete all those drafts and publish them someday, but¬†I won‚Äôt haste myself and would do¬†it¬†properly, without a¬†hard schedule).

And now¬†I remembered about all those thing, and here it¬†is¬†‚ÄĒ blog¬†‚ÄĒ a¬†new category on¬†my¬†site. Well, ‚Äúcategory‚ÄĚ is¬†a¬†strong word here, it‚Äôs just a¬†way to¬†cheat on¬†myself and make me¬†to¬†write those not-so-long things. The fact is¬†all those posts would still go¬†to RSS, I¬†still would share them on¬†twitter, so¬†nothing new there for you, except all those posts I‚Äôll write actually.

So, hooray, here it is, a blog. I’ll try to post here some stupid things often :)
