It was in 2009 when I initially realized the need and desire to start my own blog.  Although one of the things that I struggled with in the beginning was how to structure it and the individual areas I wanted to focus on.  So I did what I do best.  Up until now my business blog has primarily focused on the technical side of things.  One of my true passions and area of expertise has always been to develop with the well renowned Joomla Content Management System.  It has now been five years or so in total since I have worked with the application both professionally and personally therefore wanted to share that knowledge with others on the web.

In 2010 the overall layout and structure of my blog took a slight shift in direction.  My passion for blogging with WordPress goes a while back although had never really found a solid place.  A new section was added to my blog where I began to offer industry tips on how to better develop with the WordPress application.  Then later on in 2010 the buzz about social media reached astronomical interest so I jumped on the bandwagon.  New posts discussing social media strategies emerged onto my blog.  Based upon the traffic activity of my blog and how users interacted with it I noticed that most of my visitors took a liking to the social media approach.

As I move forward with the development of my blog these are the new primary areas of focus that you will be noticing more of on the front page.
