Mid-summer thinking

It’s not midpoint yet, but I’ve decided to reflect on the articles I’ve written so far. Basically, there are two types: the ones with content, usually the ones that I had fun writing, and the “follow up” ones where I tried to log what I had done that day. And I really realize that the latest hasn’t been so fun to write, and I’m as proud of them. Some of them are not that bad: they’re part of the initial plan, which was to log what I would have been doing this summer so far. But I realize there is so much more I can do that simply write it for myself. 

What I’ve been doing so far

There are things I’ve been doing, but haven’t written about.

  • Attended the All-Girl Hack Night, were three speakers gave talks about interactive experience, hipster databases, and creative resistance
  • Kept reading my ReactJS book
  • Watched various tutorials about various things on YouTube!
  • Listened to podcasts
  • Understanding the Yoast SEO plugin!

The plan from now on

I think I’d rather skip a day if I don’t have anything “valuable” to write on my blog. I’d rather take that time to learn something than taking it to write down something I’m not even that interested to read afterward!

Also, my friend gave me back my favorite grammar didactics book (what a nerd am I!), so I’ll probably check it out to see if there are any other articles I would write about the resemblance between grammar and coding. I already have an idea from an activity I did with former 11-year-old students a few years ago…

And I want to check how I can change the display of my blogs so it doesn’t show the previous articles, but only a certain category instead. This way, my “filler” blogposts won’t show unless you search for them. Smart, uh?

    Hey!

    Keep it up! It’s alright if you want to change the kind of content you put in here, the important part is to have fun writing in your blog! Otherwise why do it, right? 🙂

    I really liked your grammar / coding article, so I’m eager to read your future ones!

    Question: If you hide your filler blogpost, how am I suppose to find them? 😛

      Thanks for the support! 🙂

      Answer: Hack it like a ninja, I’m sure you’ll be able to find them anyways 😉
