First blog post. I'm disappointed.

Patrik Krupar @pkrupar

After 14 days of work and a purchase of brand new iPhone just for the blog post, it was finally ready. No obvious grammar errors, subscribe forms wired up, layout tested, site's live. Finally! Tired of this. Now, just share it, watch the views roll in, and I can go into my little code cave, again.

∗mouse clicks∗ and it's submitted to Reddit!

"Sorry. You seem to be a new user. Please participate around reddit before jumping straight to submitting!"

A rather disappointing start to our blog.

Any good recommendations where to share or repost dev-focused blog posts?

EDIT: I'm not a new Reddit user. The message says so, but I had my account for over 4 years and I even submitted to the same subreddit in the past. My guess is that I wasn't active enough recently, but Reddit being Reddit, tells me I'm a new user. One of the disappointments right there.
