My first post

Hello Everyone

Welcome to my blog.
In the next few months im hoping to supply you with a wide range of facts, figures and other interesting things about whats happening in the stainless steel world. This is my planning for the coming month:
Day 0: Upload version 1 of a list of stainless steel distributors
Day 7: Create an infographic about the history of inox
Day 14: Go indepth in a few popular grades and explain what they are used for
Day 21: Show all the diffrent names of stainless around the world
