Hello, and Welcome To My Blog!

Hello! My name is Grayson Peddie and this is my first time writing my blog from scratch instead of using WordPress. I was born in Panama City and raised in Tallahassee, Florida throughout my entire life. I am CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ certified and I love to get into career in Information Technology. I want to get my feet wet in a little bit of cybersecurity and a lot of network engineering. Not only that, I would also like to setup a homelab with a couple of servers for running OpenStack.

The reason why I wrote my own blog engine instead of using WordPress or any other content management systems is to challenge myself. My blog engine is designed to be written with security in mind. Plus, I want to keep the administration user interface separate from my main website. I do the same for MySQL by creating two databases: one for my main blog and one for administrative tasks. An administration panel (a web application) is designed to be private in my home network, so when I'm ready to publish my blog article, I can sync my blog database to my public website, which is what you are reading now.
