Take 2: Yet Another Blog Intro

Howdy readers, new and old. I’ve made so many introductory blog posts on so many different platforms that I’ve lost an exact count (1234).

So here we are yet again!

Welcome to Low Budget Code

What’s so special about this attempt? This story starts with a tweet.

I’ve attributed a big part of my success as a software developer to my soft skills, so I was very interested in following up on the book and author. As a result of my research I discovered John Sonmez’s site, http://simpleprogrammer.com. While browsing Sonmez’s site I was presented with the following call to action:

I saw the form and thought, “What have I got to lose?” And here we are, at yet another introductory post!

The Lessons

I am on lesson 5 as of this post. These lessons have provided something that was missing from my previous blog attempts: A cohesive plan. After going through the lessons I realized my previous attempts at blogging had some of the bits and pieces, but I never had a cohesive plan.

Each of John’s lesson gives you valuable information followed by an assignment to get your blog up and running. It’s a great format and it works well. I was surprised to see some of the homework assignments ask you to reply to the newsletter. I was even more surprised to get an actual response. It’s a small personal touch, but it shows a commitment that John has to his lessons.

What’s Next?

I’ve already got a few ideas for posts, so there will be more to come. I mean it this time. For now you can catch me on Twitter, @uz88.
