It has begun. I created a blog and wrote my first posts to share my knowledge and appreciation for 3D design in general and SolidWorks in particular.
A big shoutout to John Sonmez from https://simpleprogrammer.com/. He created an email course on how to create a blog, in which he pushes you to just start with the blog immediately. I followed his advice and now we’re getting close to a thousand hits, woohoo. Let’s see if we can improve my current record of 500.000 hits in a month from back when I was building casemods at Bit-tech.
And now I have my very own Twitter account: @peterbrinkhuis. Follow me if you like, I’ll follow you if you have something interesting to say 😉
What I’ll be using Twitter for
As long as Twitter doesn’t lift its 140 characters limit on regular tweets, I’ll have a perfect platform for short messages, blog announcements and the like. Do you have a question? Let me know. Do you want me to write a blog post about a particular subject? Send me a tweet.
What I’ll be using this blog for
This blog will house longer posts related to 3D design, SolidWorks, Onshape and whatever the future will bring. That may include SolidWorks in the cloud in the form of Xdesign, which will be released in the end of 2016 together with SolidWorks 2017.
Do you have a request or an improvement on a blog post? Please let me know in the comments, although I certainly will reply to tweets and emails as well.
