This is the personal website of Kyle J. Davis.
In November 2022, with the dramatic and rapid shift of the tech industry away from Twitter to Mastodon, I began to become nostalgic for the days before large, corporate social media. I have had many tries at a personal blog or website over the years:
|Mid-1990s||GeoCities? AngelFire? I can’t remember||My memory is fuzzy, I think I was interested in music and guitars at the time.|
|‘02-‘05-ish||Custom blogging engine based on the LAMP stack.||Travel, friends, some tech news and gadgets|
|‘11-‘18-ish||Medium||Databases and coding, mostly related to Redis|
At work, I’ve blogged in various locations, often related to whatever role I had at the time.
I’m hoping to get back into personal blogging. I’ve become a better writer over the years and it doesn’t take me as long as it once did. I also want to share some stuff about my geeky hobbies that don’t quite fit on social media as a primary platform.
A few topics you may see from me here:
- 3D Printing and modeling
- Home Assistant and smart home stuff
- DIY and household projects
Occasionally, you might also see random tech related content that is outside the above areas.
I don’t have a huge amount of goals for this site. I think in my previous personal site iterations, I put too much pressure on myself to do something with the blog. If I’m honest, I do credit blogging on Medium with getting my foot into the door with a real tech company but I don’t think I’m looking to do anything like that this time around.
