1. Personal accountability/fight procrastination.
2. For reference of anyone else getting into game development
3. To help me reflect on my experiences and to help make better sense of them.
There are of course a few other reasons but those aren't important. I hope that it either helps me or helps someone who reads this.
I don't like getting personal about things so all anyone needs to know about me here for now is that I'm in my late 20s, have a B.S. degree in computer science and my day job is an .net web developer that makes apps at a bank.
