Back in April, I talked about my 2020 goal to post more substantive, coding-related content on this blog. Since creating my blog nine years ago, I’ve written almost 930 posts. So far this year, I’ve written 65 posts with an average word count per post of 167. Compared to the five posts in 2016, and one post in 2017, I think that I’m doing pretty well. Compared to the four words per post in 2018 and three words per post in 2019, I’m also doing pretty well with the “substantive” goal.
Since the beginning of the year, I’ve stuck pretty well to a cadence of posting every Thursday and every other Tuesday. With four months left in the year, I think I should be able to keep this up. I’m definitely not expecting to keep it up in 2021, though.
So, what am I planning for 2021? I’m thinking about writing fewer posts but targeting a wider variety of topics (ie Angular, Flutter, Svelt, React, Ember, Polymer, Backbone, Knockout, and Meteor). I also have a bunch of side-projects in potentia. I might write fewer blog posts but write more things. I guess I have some time to figure it out, though.
