On February 6th, 2015, I applied for my Ubuntu Membership and got it. A year later (-ish) and 53 posts later (yes, I counted!), I’m still a Ubuntu Member and still a blogger over what I do in the Ubuntu Community and sometimes outside of the Community. The Planet Ubuntu link for my blog is really the only perk* that I use mainly that actually gives me the reason to keep on blogging. The Ubuntu Sense blog is the only successful blog that I have ran over the ten plus years that I was online.
I always wanted my own site, but never had reason to do so. Same thing with a blog. The earliest examples that I can think of is me posting about random things about my life or what happened, and that was when I was in middle school into high school. Only then in December 2009, I started World of Torzukarr, a fantasy fiction idea blog. I kept it running for three to four years, as a log of ideas and as proof of when I got this idea and a way to get feedback on ideas. Because I posted time to time, the blog wasn’t that popular and I didn’t get that much feedback. When I got myself involved within the Ubuntu Community, shortly after, I had no way to post the news of the happenings or the insights that I was getting. I found that mircoblogging never worked and I knew that I was semi-running a blog, so it was the perfect fit for me.
*Sorry for saying this but I do mean it. The e-mail address doesn’t help me with anything, it’s just another e-mail address that fowards to my main one.
