If you found this page, it means two things:

  1. You are interested in data science, but aren’t sure where or how to begin.
  2. My SEO skills are improving.

I might be able to help with #1. I can tell you what I’ve done so far and of those, what worked. Maybe you’ll pick up a tip or two, and I will be able to do the post title justice.

#2… Let’s leave it at that.

You might be wondering what credentials I have to say I can help you out. I don’t have any. I’m a complete data science newb. But, why would I need credentials for wanting to help?

If you know less than I do, I can teach you.

If you know more than I do, you can teach me.

If you and I are on the same level, we can help each other learn.

That’s the idea behind this post.

I won’t go into defining what data science is (and its related terms, such as big data and data analytics). I will assume that your finding yourself here means you’ve already googled all that.

Hello, World!

Hello, World!

My name is Danna, and I’m a dork.

If you run that via Google you’ll prolly come across my tumblr. That’s me too.

So why another blog? I’m not quite sure myself.

Maybe because I know I used to love blogging, but stopped for a long time?

Maybe I’m hoping to rekindle that love?

Maybe tumblr is the long-term boyfriend that was just “good enough”, but isn’t THE ONE?

Maybe I should stop making relationship analogies.

 

I do know I have ideas, so maybe the Internet can help flesh them out.

I do know I want to write, so maybe I can practice with blogging.

I do know how useful blogs are for learning, so maybe someone can learn from what I write too.

 

I just know these few things, and maybe WordPress is the right place to put them.

And maybe, just maybe, I might fall in love with blogging again.
