Hi! I'm Randl Morales, a software developer in Toronto, Canada.

This is blog 2

Hi, welcome to my first post!

There are three reasons why I am creating this blog: 1) to use as my official website, 2) to store all my notes, and 3) to hone my writing skills.

As my official website,

I am planning on somehow linking this site with my domain. I will then share that domain everywhere (calling cards, social media profiles, emails, etc.), making this site the destination of anybody who would want to be in touch with me. I plan on adding the basic pages everyone has on their personal site: about me, contact, and a page where I link my other sites (like my GitHub, Twitter, etc.). Also, I want this site to feature my work, so a nice portfolio page would be great too.

As a note storing medium,

this site looks absolutely promising. I am somebody who loves writing down notes on paper. But somehow, after years and years of doing this, I never came up with a good consistent system where I organize all my notes. I think this is the logical step forward. It's time I embrace digitized notetaking.

Since I am a software developer, It would be nice to have the ability to write code blocks.

using System;

namespace SampleCode
{
  public class Program
  {
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
      CreateWebHostBuilder(args).Build().Run();
    }

    public static IWebHostBuilder CreateWebHostBuilder(string[] args) =>
        WebHost.CreateDefaultBuilder(args)
            .UseStartup<Startup>();
  }
}
<!-- CSS Code: Place this code in the document's head (between the 'head' tags) -->
<style>
table.GeneratedTable {
  width: 100%;
  background-color: #ffffff;
  border-collapse: collapse;
  border-width: 2px;
  border-color: #ffcc00;
  border-style: solid;
  color: #000000;
}

table.GeneratedTable td, table.GeneratedTable th {
  border-width: 2px;
  border-color: #ffcc00;
  border-style: solid;
  padding: 3px;
}

table.GeneratedTable thead {
  background-color: #ffcc00;
}
</style>

<!-- HTML Code: Place this code in the document's body (between the 'body' tags) where the table should appear -->
<table class="GeneratedTable">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Header</th>
      <th>Header</th>
      <th>Header</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

Looks good, but I need to learn how to apply syntax highlighting and colors.

And finally,

As a place to practice my writing skills,

I think this site is great. It's very straightforward and simple. It's exactly what I need. My work never needs me to have exceptional writing skills. Writing down long emails or documentation are the extent of my writing requirements at work. Therefore, I never got to practice on my writing skills that much. That said, I will treat each of my posts here as if it's going to get published. This is where I become as practice my writing. I probably have multiple grammar and punctuation errors in this post already. This is my starting point in terms of writing quality, and let's see if I can notice improvements. I think overall, my writing ability is adequate with room for improvement.

So there you have it. The three reasons why this page exist. Can't wait to post cool stuff soon!
