Over the past several months, I’ve been wanting to start a journal to keep track of all the encounters of my daily programmer life. Until now, I’ve mainly used Microsoft Outlook’s Journal feature. This works fine, but it doesn’t publish it for all the world to see. What if I actually do discover something useful for others to get some good out of it? I could have taken the easy route and just used an existing blog site or facebook I suppose. But, since I’m in learning mode, why not set up my own website, with my own personal blog? What a cool idea, right? So I set off googling and stumbled upon BlogEngine.Net. This link gives you some more choices of what’s currently out there: http://csharp-source.net/open-source/bloggers It’s a customizable open source ASP.Net blog application written C#.

For the sake of this blog entry, I’ve already got my environment ready to go.
