I am sitting here in the back of a coffee shop in December 2019, thinking about what I want out of 2020. In August, I turn 40 (which is slightly frightening). I want to move my career forward in 2020. I do not particularly know how to do that but by the time you read …

We apparently made it to the end of 2020. It was a hell of a year. On Thursday, my 2020 “time capsule” post should be auto-posting. This year, I set a goal of posting something coding related every week. In the end, I settled on a cadence of posting something related to web development every …

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on both my physical and mental health. I don’t think that I am alone in that.

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 …

Back in December, I set the goal to post more code to this blog. Four months in, I have posted something coding related every Thursday and something else every other Tuesday. The only exception was last week when I posted nothing at all. I just had nothing left in the tank (call it COVID brain, …

I mentioned back in October that I wanted to post more substantive content on this blog. Starting on Thursday, I am going to start publishing weekly posts to the coding category. A few weeks ago, I started posting regularly to photos.jws. I want to try to do a photo-per-day kind of thing, moving forward.
My 2018 goals were to get reasonably good at the ukulele and travel somewhere adventurous. I think that I succeeded. My goals for 2019 were to keep traveling places and finish a side project before That Conference. 50% success is pretty good, I guess? 😉
My 2020 goals are to share more code (see above) and finish a side project. I think that should be achievable?
Up until 2018, I posted on this blog very infrequently. During some years, there were only 1 or 2 posts in total. Last year, I decided to try to post something here every day (even if it is just a photo). Moving forward, I want to tweak that. I am going to post fewer “every day” photos and more traditional blog content. You can expect one or two posts per week in 2020.
If you want to see more “every day” photos, you can check out my instagram, flickr, or tumblr accounts. If you want to see a combined feed of my twitter and instagram posts, you can check out my mastodon feed.
