First of all: As you might notice: Most of the blog posts have been changed to private. This is due to the fact that I have collected them all into an ebook: https://leanpub.com/wouldheuriskit
While I figure out how to keep parts of the blog posts but still encourage you to buy the book, I hid all posts except the first, last and one card per category. Sorry about the inconvenience!
It has been a pretty awesome ride writing all of these! The first blog post, the introduction, was published Dec 30th 2019. The last one, Wrap up, April 30th 2020. Thas is 32 blog posts in 4 months, 122 days. That is one blog post every 3.8125 days! (About half of them written and published in a very aggressive pace of every second or third day)
What is amazing is that I managed to go from blogging almost nothing (a few posts here and there, most to publish slides) to getting comfortable seriously writing on a regular basis.
I had a period when nothing got written, until I realized the biggest problem was that I couldn’t really remember what I had written about already. Writing a short list with summary solved that and I could write again. Finding your blockers is key to continuous improvements so WELL DONE ME!
I learned a lot of things from this. 1. I have so much knowledge to pour from 2. I love writing! 3. I need to learn how to accept when I need to slow down, and not feel like a failure. 4. The hard part about writing, for me, is to come up with the topic. 5. I am very bad at the common 5 – 6 00 word format. My usual size seems to be around 1 000 – 1 500 words.
These blog posts have covered a very wide variety of topics. The ones I seemed to enjoy writing the most are the ones around common developer mistakes and/or technological complexity. This is an area I should explore writing more about.
Next step for me is to collect all of these and make them into a book, something I wanted to do for a long time. I will also work on more ideas for exercises and workshops for the cards.
I´d love to hear comments on my interpretations and choices of cards but also if you have alternative interpretations, card you feel are missed out or have ideas on how you would like to use them.
I would love to get feedback on my writing, content, things you would like to see me write about.
If you made it through all of these 32 posts: Thank you for sticking with me! Over and out for now.
