Thank you wordpress!

Here I am starting a new tech blog. This is going to be based on personal experience, for my own reference and for who ever will find anything useful.

  • Free hosting and maintenance. Unless you don’t care that it will be under sub domain of wordpress.com and a bit of advertisement
  • It has all the nice blog features like tags, comments, search etc.

  • It looks great and have tones of beautiful templates

So thank you wordpress! And let’s go!
