I don’t know that I’d refer to myself as a prolific blogger quite yet, but I certainly have been more diligent about keeping my professional blog up to date more often than I have in the past. Even still, I just wasn’t happy with BlogEngine.NET – not that it’s a bad product mind you. It’s simply because I fall victim to the same fate many IT professionals do – the cobbler’s kids have no shoes.
I keep having these grandiose ideas of putting together my own blogging platform, or configuring BlogEngine to look exactly how I want it to look, or adding on all the widgets that I want or, well, you sort of get the point.
So why Blogger? Why not, say, Office 365 with me being the SharePoint guy that I am? See above – I wanted something simple and turnkey. I was able to get Blogger up and running and configured to roughly how I want it in about an hour, and that includes reposting all of my old posts. It was also a platform that I’m familiar with, as that’s what I use for my personal blog. And lastly, I wanted an environment where I’d better be able to manage my spam.
For my readers, I thank you for keeping up with me, and hope you’ll follow me over here.
 Although that was mostly due to the wonder that is Live Writer.
 No, I’m not going to link to my personal blog from here. You can find it if you like, it’s not that hard. While I don’t try to hide my personal online presence, I do make a clear distinction between this is what I do for work and this is what I do in my off time – not that I’m really all that risqué.
