After 8 years of blogging at fernandozamorajimenez.blogspot.com I have decided to move to a new location. The location is new as well as the hosting environment. I will no longer be blogging at fernandozamorajimenez.blogspot.com.
This decision comes after much research and advice from other fellow bloggers.
Blogging at the old site has served me well but it is no longer viable. Maybe it never was, but I didn’t know better. It was good because it is free but as I listened more and more to seasoned blogger John Sonmez at simpleprogrammer.com I realized that blogspot.com falls short in providing me with the basic features in maintaining a blog that can flourish and grow.
Many of the limitations are due to its restrictive nature of extensibility.
My new home is hosted as a Word Press site. Now I will have the capability to do many things such as adding plugins that will enable me to grow my audience. Flexibility to add other media besides blogs such as videos and products.
It will also allow me to create a website that is more appealing since I won’t be restricted to the limited number of themes available to blogspot.
I also want to be more focused on the mission of the blog. Whereas the old site started out as an experiment and later grew to be a sort diary for my adventures, this site will be focused on giving advice and tutorials that will help developers grow.
The current trend in software development is to be a Rockstar or a Ninja. There is so much pressure to be “brilliant” or “world class”. New technologies are introduced at the speed of light. It seems that the forces demand that we learn the latest and become a Rockstar or become obsolete.
My intent in contrast is to help professionals filter out the noise and focus on what is really important in their careers.
So you can expect a lot beginner type tutorials, many tips and tricks, and advise that will take you to the next level in your career.
All of us are beginners at one point or another and all of us are experts in some things and beginners at others, all at the same time.
So get ready to get your regular doze of entertaining tutorials and advice.
Thank you for reading this and I look forward for your return.
