Creating posts from my phone part 1

Lets start at the beginning.  Why am I authoring most of these posts on my phone?

I have a full time job, a wife, and three little boys.  Those things take up most of my time.  Then I have other normal responsibilities like mowing the lawn, taking out the garbage, home repairs, etc.  With all of that I don't have much time outside of work to sit down in front of a computer.

I tried to start this blog a few months ago.  I got a couple articles published but then it kind of died.  Recently though I started thinking about what I do most days.  I spend a lot of time just watching the kids so they don't get into things or get hurt.  I was often watching Netflix on my phone while I was doing that.  So I thought maybe I could do something more productive.

I started looking into what I could do on my phone that would help me get articles written.  I found out I could do a lot, and actually I could create entire articles with screenshots and code examples.  I will get into more about how I do all of that and what tools and apps I use in another article.

My goal will now be to publish an article every day.  I have already missed a day but I will continue trying to keep that pace.  I'm sure many of the articles, like this one, won't have much value to most of you.  Hopefully there will be some good ones in there somewhere though.
