Starting a new, personal blog
By vtatkar on Nov 15, 2010
Its been more than 5 years since I started my blog here and all through this time, this blog has stayed (almost) entirely professional. I made a decision not to blog about personal "stuff" unless it related directly to Sun Studio. Not everyone liked that, BTW, but I didnt feel comfortable talking about family, leisure time and other things in a corporate sponsored site, although I did enjoy reading what others said about their personal life in theirs. Worked for them, but wouldnt have worked for me (at least thats how I felt).
Now, after all these years, I figured its time to start a more personal version of blogging. So I've created a new account on Wordpress and I am starting a new line of blogging there, that I am (at least tentatively) calling The Other side of the Story .
I hope you will join me there and leave comments and share your views there as well. I will continue to pitch in Studio, Compilers, Developer Tools, Solaris, Sun Systems etc here as I have in the past. I will try to continue to be technical, product oriented and evangelism focussed, as in the past. But increasingly I've found that I cannot write about things that I am working on (yet) or thinking about, so the other blog is an outlet for how I feel outside of Studio. No, dont expect that I will spill the beans there that I cant spill here and perhaps a few things from either place may be cross referenced from the other as well. The separation between personal and professional life is not that clean in this industry.
I am hoping there will be equally interesting things to say on both sides.
So see you there as well, to share the other side of my story.
