Since starting this blog shortly before the pandemic began, I’ve been very inconsistent in my writing. Having been an author or co-author of a number of books in the last decade or so, I want to keep improving my writing skills. And the only way I can do that is to write more often.

Why write more now?

Recently I’ve been thinking about what I want to spend my time on in the future, and I’m still working on what exactly that might be. However, I do know that I enjoy writing, mostly, and I would like to increase my writing while also improving how I write.

I don’t know whether I’ll write another book, maybe at some point, but I do want to write more consistently. Whether writing becomes a bigger part of my future or not, only time can answer that question.

What will I write about?

Right now I’m not 100% sure what I’ll write about. I will likely start with OpenTelemetry, as it’s an area I’ve been focused on for a few years. I could write about the process of writing instrumentation for OpenTelemetry, especially in relation to the Java SDK.

I’d be interested in hearing from you about what you’d like to read about. If you have any ideas, please let me know.
