I'm building my personal websites since 1998 and this is version 35. I realized, for the last 8-10 years, I'm mainly showing the output but not touching on the processes and thinking behind it.

There are many reasons for this: 1) articulation has never been my main focus, 2) English is not my first language; therefore writing part always takes longer than I expect, 3) it feels like I'm wasting my time because most people don't read ...

But the process is a big part of my output. I (almost) never do things randomly or casually. I have a habit of deep researching, I think thoroughly before doing any hands-on work, I learn new tools or come up with new ways to use the old ones ...

This journal aims to build a form of personal logging system which includes daily/weekly logs, notes on various projects and curated content of general knowledge. So I can remember and hopefully, I'd touch on one or two points occasionally that can be useful for other people.
