I decided I should write about my side projects. I came up with three good
reasons why this would be beneficial:

  1. motivation - writing about my projects makes me want to work on them
  2. documentation - side projects can be put aside for long periods
  3. ...
  4. profit! (sorry)
  5. exploration - the blog itself allows me to experiment with technology I am interested in

After looking at frameworks capable of generating static sites, I decided to go with Contenticious which is based on Mojolicious. I recently used Mojolicious for a work project and really liked it so I used it for my blog. Also, both are Perl based and I just don't write enough Perl these days. Not to mention the fact that I went and bought the domain and I just can't let it go to waste.
