About This Site and Blog

What this site is all about...

I am implementing this blog (and site) from scratch~ish. I want to blog about my experience implementing this, so I got the functionality to a bare minimum for a blog and this is it. There is support for posts and comments and not much else. As I add more features over the next few weeks, I will blog about some of the details. I have never blogged before so hopefully I don't suck too much and improve quickly :). Improving my writing skills is one of my main goals with blogging.

The technology behind this site is the ASP.NET MVC framework (currently running on Preview 4), SQL Server 2005 and LINQ to SQL for the data access. The architecture is heavily influenced by Rob Connery and his MVC Storefront series, who I am a big fan of. I am using Structure Map for Dependency Injection, the pseudo-repository pattern with IQueryables, etc.

Thanks to the following softies bloggers for their great posts on the MVC framework:
