Why a blog?
This is the first blog post I have ever written. Mostly I've not written anything based on fear. Fear that I'm not good enough to post anything out into the aether. 3 years ago I left the programming industry thinking I would never return. In that time I've learned some hard life lessons, the foremost of these lessons is that fear is like a fly trap, it keeps you stuck. So I am making 2010 the year to be fearless. I hope you will all join me and make your first blog post on blogs.perl.org. Look for more posts from this, now community aware, Perl hacker.
