I'm a programmer, I'm coding my own blog engine
This has been a long time coming. I've preached about blogging for years and yet, have never done it myself. Well, I have but that was back in 1997 and I didn't keep it up and I don't have proof. Not only that, but I'm a big believer that programmers should write code and if you're a programmer AND gonna write a blog, that you should write the blog engine yourself. It shows off your talents, or lack there of, and you'll learn something along the way.
The kick in the butt was when Kijana started his own blog and coded it himself and Zach picked up Moonscript and built a blog engine; so it's about damn time I did it.
