Because.

First of all, because I always admired bloggers but mainly because I’m a developer, ex-designer[ UI/UX, graphic design, Front End development ]. However, you can read more personal stuff here.

This is my first article and as you see the topic of it will be “why blogging?” and why Arcticben.

 

3 Questions.

 

Who is my site for?

I launched this website first of all for me and also for  creative entrepreneurs, bloggers,  web designers and geek rockstars. These categories [ stereotypes ] contains the right people to read my blog and I want them to know that.

I think is a good idea that before writing  articles I must specify who my site is for so that I can quickly connect with the reader.

 

Why  blogging?

 

First of all, I’m looking forward to meeting new people.

Whether it be through comments, meet-ups, e-mails, or social media. I’m looking forward to meeting you – by that I mean to legitimately develop a professional  relationship [ or just be friends ] that seeks to serve one another. A smart geek once said that knowledge is power therefore, I will get to know you and then I’ll gain more power – smart huh?

 

Show off.

Yes! Consider this website is not just a blog is also a portfolio website, my own Mona Lisa.

Behance is my oldest and actually the first portfolio  “thing” but I only use it for design purposes and to be honest I needed to show off my CSS and Javascript skills.

 

Why Arctic Ben?

Obviously, my name is Ben [ Benjamin ]. However, one of the best definitions for the word “arctic” is thischaracteristic of the extremely cold, snowy, windy weather north of the Arctic Circle; frigid.

Recently I was given a new nickname Arctic Fox why? First of all, I have some highlights on my hair. Second of all, people often say that I’m a bit cold as a person. Third of all, I more like a “north” person, what does that mean? Well, I enjoy mountain hiking , snowboarding, northern lights, trees, northern animals and the view from the mountain peak.

I like to believe that I bring fresh air into people’s lives.

 

Lastly, I would like to mention one of my favorite authors, Eugene Ionesco, who once said that:

It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.

How can you and I innovate this world?
