When we first starting thinking about this company, I always knew I wanted to have a blog attached to the site. I needed an outlet to speak my mind on certain thoughts or a place to detail some problems or successes with development. I also wanted a place for Chris to be able to do the same.
Over the past few weeks, as we launched Riled Up and continued to develop Grind, I've been jotting down little things here and there to talk about. I questioned something in the process of doing this however. Should we put all of these things in the Riled Up blog? What exactly should go into the feed? Would it be news or background about the company and what we are developing? Would it include in depth programming topics? What about design?
We could narrow the focus of the blog and say it will only be about one things, but that wouldn't be true to who we are and what we are doing as a company. We are a shop that makes things. We make designs, t-shirts, apps, websites, and basically anything else that fits our interests. So to narrow our focus and cut out a discussion on a specific programming problem I am deal with or a specific element of design Chris is working on would, I think, be a mistake.
So we are going to include all those things here. This will be a blog sometimes about Riled Up, sometimes about topics related to development, sometimes about design. But always it will be related to our core interests and values. We hope what we present here will give readers a little window into what we like and what we do, and hopefully have a little fun or learn something in the process.
