Holding on to the false hope that success thrives from inconsistency, welcome to yet another version of my blog! I promise, this was necessary for a few reasons. The first of those stemming from how completely unnecessary this was. There was nothing fundamentally wrong with what you were used to before, but for me it just wasn’t cutting it. I am a web developer (now, actually by trade 😲). However, that previous blog layout wasn’t coded by me. That felt like a sin. I was simply sponging off someone else’s creation. Not acceptable.

Technically, I’m not new. I’ve been around in the blogging business for a while. First it was Tumblr, then a new, more concise Tumblr followed that. Alongside that one was an even more concise WordPress blog, and now we find ourselves here: tunde.io – a WordPress blog with my own domain. If by some miracle you actually did follow those old blogs (which don’t exist anymore) firstly, thank you.
