Why a Blog?

I’m a contract .NET specialist in the UK, husband, father, step-father, company director, ultra-marathon runner, and in my spare time I like to read sci-fi and watch my share of TV. The problem is that I just don’t seem to have enough hours in the day (or night) when I’m focused enough to do things as well as I’d like – going for a training run is weighed against building product which gets in the way of taking the kids out and forget about spending some decent time with my wife.

This blog will allow me to satisfy my slightly narcissistic need to share some thoughts and experiences in the .NET / software domain and also to talk about achieving (or failing to achieve) a work / life balance that still lets me grow as a professional and do everything else I want to.

Hopefully I won’t be boring…
