Blog, blog, blog, why would a professional J2EE developer do this?
Blogging, the shameless method of displaying ones opinions on the net. It makes a person feel important, authoritative, as if the whole world is taking the time to read what they write. I don't like blogs. I fail to see them as much more than another time-leaching distraction on the web. Sure, sometimes you will find a gem or two, but overall it is just another quick information fix for us net junkies.
But wait...what is this? Am I not working on a fix for the community, flicking the web's veins and preparing a sweet dose of subjective writing? No, I'm blargging. Blarg. I don't want to take any of your time. I want to return it. I want to help you get your job done. I want to help you to bedazzle your boss, and I want to send you home satisfied and ready to spend quality time with your family.
What can I do and why would I do it? Well, I can't do everything, but I can help with Servlets, JavaServer Pages, Tomcat, and most all of J2EE. If you are building a Web Application, I'm your man. Why? Well, I'm one of those guys that works full time consulting, helps with JSRs, codes open-source projects, and writes tech material. I am the guy that actually does this stuff all the time; I am a lost cause. I realize this, yet I'm not going to stop. I like this addiction. I like living in front of my laptop, and I like attempting to dispense advice from my quirky knowledge base. Use me. Ask me to help get your work done. Lean on one of the piers of the J2EE Web Tier.
Seriously, this blarg is for you. Send me questions about what I know. I'll answer them in a completely subjective and practical manner. You can find me here, at JSP Insider, at JSPBook.com, or at home. Any of the above will do, but lets see if we can blarg a dent in these java.net blogs.
