“For me, blog is first of all a knowledge management tool, followed by a communication tool. My technical articles are mainly used to sort out the knowledge I don’t understand yet. I only write about things that I haven’t fully mastered yet. As for the things I am proficient in, I usually have no incentive to write related articles. Showing off has never been my motivation to write. Curiosity is.” ──阮一峰

I started writing blogs in 2016, and it’s been many years now. I’ve experimented with various writing platforms, but ultimately, I chose to create my own website. This choice grants me full control and the highest degree of freedom. My articles won’t be deleted or blocked without reason. Additionally, there are many free static site hosting services available (such as GitHub Pages, Vercel, etc.), which essentially require no monetary investment.

Whether it’s a lifestyle blog or a technical blog, every blogger has their own objectives. My purpose for blogging has changed many times. Initially, I simply wanted to try out new things. Later, I aimed to gain more readership and comments because they provided a strong sense of accomplishment. Subsequently, I used my blog as a technical notebook and diary, jotting down numerous miscellaneous thoughts. Now, my primary goal for blogging is to use it as a tool to organize and construct my knowledge framework. My blog, along with my personal notes repository ryan4yin/knowledge, serves as my treasure trove of knowledge. As I continually add new content, I find myself increasingly reliant on it for my daily work and even leisure activities. My secondary objective is to share the knowledge I acquire with those who need it, embracing the joy of helping others. Lastly, I use blogging to document myself—my joys, sorrows, and personal growth.

I’ve purchased domain names for the longest duration of ten years, and renewing them every few years. I hope this blog will accompany me for a very long time. Looking back at my blog in the next decade and reflecting on the path I’ve walked over these ten years, I believe that time will hold special significance.
