Split personality (or cleaning house!)

After some long and hard thinking I have decided to split my blog into two. Whilst I’m doing the Blogging101 course it’s become evident that I need to establish my target audience, and at the moment my blog is giving mixed signals, i.e. is it a personal blog or is this my techie blog. I originally started this blog as I’ve mentioned previously, as a way to keep track of technical articles that I find interesting without losing them in a sea of bookmarks. Over the last few days I think I’ve lost sight of that goal by interspersing it with personal writing.

With that in mind I am going to refocus my efforts for this course on developing the technical aspect of my blog whilst retaining my original aim to provide technical content. All the non-techie and more personal stuff I shall be moving to a new blog in a few days time. Hopefully this way I can remain true to my original aims and keep my viewers happy!

I shall make an announcement on here when my personal blog is launched.


I am and have been an Oracle dba for the past twenty something years, with a few deviations to dabble in other areas. I’m certified (or is that certifiable) in both Oracle 10 and 11G OCP. I’m an “old skool” hacker at heart in the traditional sense, pulling apart bits of kit to see how they work, mainly with the intention of fixing it, mostly with the outcome of breaking it! I like toying with hardware, software and new technologies and love Linux, although Windows 10 is looking pretty slick too. I have a keen interest in reading / writing and electronics, and occasionally snap a few photos. If I can help you I will, so if you have any questions feel free to ask by using my contact form. -Lee And now for the disclaimer: Anything I write here is my own opinion and does not represent the view of any company I work for now or have worked for in the past.
