Five years

My first post on this blog was five years ago today.

Apparently five years is my wooden anniversary. As a little wood-themed anniversary gift, here's something lovely:

Being TechieBird

I've been neglecting this blog for a long time now, and partly that's been due to indecision. I've known that I wanted to post on more topics, and for that the blog needed a new name. (And with hindsight, the blog name I chose back in 2007 really wasn't very good.)

At the same time, I supposed that TechieBird probably isn't the most serious and professional sounding moniker for a serious IT professional.

So a couple of nights ago I chose a new name for my Twitter account and for this blog. It's mostly irrelevant what it was because, when it came to clicking on the Save Changes button on Twitter, I couldn't bring myself to do it. It was only then that I realised how much I've become attached to this name and the badly-drawn pink bird that is my avatar.

Most of us want to be taken seriously in our careers, but if we have to hide our pink, feathered side* to do it then we lose a piece of ourselves.

So, in celebration of this small epiphany, I am happy to present my new domain name,

Welcome to my nest.

*Those who know me would say I'm more beak and claws than pink feathers anyway. But you get the idea.
