Welcome to my web page

I write this web page to vent out and share personal experiences about all kinds of subjects, including professional topics, life in general and everything else in between. I develop software for the web and windows, so you will find that most of my posts will be related to programming, design, implementation and the few annoyances that go with it. SEO or Search Engine Optimisation is another one of my passions that I will blog about to a certain extent.
