Hi, I'm Steve. The premise of this journal is that each post is uniquely styled, just like an article in a magazine. Although art directed blog posts are not as trendy as they once were, I find this blogging format to be quite enjoyable because it scratches my itch to design. As such, this journal is basically an excuse to allow me to practice web design, play around with various HTML and CSS techniques, and (hopefully) improve my writing skills.
The Journal is organized into volumes. Volume I contains articles from 2009 through 2012. It is mainly stuff that I had written before I started the Journal in the current form that you see here today. Those articles are not really in any chronological order. Volume II contains everything written in 2013, Volume III contains everything from 2014, Volume IV contains everything written in 2015, and so on.
As a note, some of the content in the older articles may be dated, as technology inevitably marches forward. It is also worth noting that I often change my opinions (especially when it comes to my tech related viewpoints), and I am not ashamed of that. I think that a person needs to keep an open mind in order to grow.
On a personal note, I consider myself extremely blessed by God to have a beautiful wife, two awesome teenage sons, and a wonderful daughter. In addition to my tech related interests, I am a huge car fanatic, and I love the game of basketball.
I hope you enjoy the Journal. To get started, you should browse the Table of Contents.
