After much procrastination, I finally started a personal blog

March 3, 2020

I’ve been meaning to start my own blog for a while now. One thing I really enjoy doing is self-teaching web development topics, and I know I’ll learn better if I actually write about it. I believe in this movement of both learning in public and building in public. Just from following different developers on Twitter and/or on podcasts, I’ve seen that it’s really a win-win situation.

While further strengthening development skills, the provider of the content also increasingly becomes more personable and a better writer. I’m sure I have quite a way to go in that respect. The receiver of this content gets to learn something new, even if the topic is something they’ve already learned.

Every individual has a unique way of teaching and delivering material. No matter how many educational resources exist out there on a certain topic, anyone can step in and teach it in their own way. There’s always a handful of people who can better identify with a different approach when learning something new.

I hope this blog will allow me to contribute to the online community in the same way that I’ve benefited from it.

Some Goals

  1. Display relevant data (GitHub projects, Tweets, etc)
  2. Publish quick posts about web development, ideally as I learn new things
  3. Become super familiar with building with React
  4. Learn and implement UI best practices with TailwindCSS
