I’m not one for setting specific goals or making resolutions at the end of the year. But when I look back at this blog and how it changed over the course of 2019, it’s evident that I blogged far less than I did in previous years.
There are several factors for this, none of which are bad, just the changing nature of life, work, and all that.
But I was hard, ahem, pressed to set a goal for this blog in the next year it’d be to get back to blogging more frequently but also:
- with shorter posts,
- spending time some time linking out to things I’ve read that I found interesting.
So rather than wait until next year, why not start now?
Reading Before 2020
Roughly three years ago, I had a tag on this site called Must Read but I’ve not used it since. Why not start using it again with some resources for reading before 2020?
Here are a few articles that I recently read that, if nothing else, are good food for thought. They aren’t necessarily things I say you should follow; they are things that are worth reading to keep tabs on the state of things in our industry.
- ⛑ PHP or Type Safety: Pick any two
- 📝 How to write a commit message
- 💁🏻♂️ Things end users care about but programmers don’t
- 🚫 Typed property must not be accessed before initialization
And finally, one of the apps that I’ve grown to really enjoy is Hevy. Regardless of the type of workouts you do (or how frequently or whatever), then it’s worth checking out. For those who are interested in how the app was built, I also recommend this article.
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve and with that, I look forward to 2020!
