Three years blogging

And apparently still going Published on thought

As I was browsing (a.k.a. overengineering) my website again, I realized that last Friday marked the three-year anniversary of my blogging adventure. On November 24, 2020[1], I wrote my first update: #3 Friends and digital gardening.

I remember that I decided to start this website during the COVID-19 lockdown. At that time, the concept of Blogging on The Internet sounded very daunting to me, but I felt like I wanted to do something in public, something that kept me accountable.

To build courage, and mostly to get started, I wrote two weekly updates that were just a few lines long. I didn't publish them. On the third week, I finally felt brave enough and published my first real blog post.

It has now been three years, and I am proud of having kept this routine for so long. My individual posts are not that good, I am definitely not the best writer out there. Yet, I feel like I was able to create a space that is really mine. Here, I feel safe to experiment, code, document, have fun, overthink, share truths-because-its-on-the-internet, doodle, learn, create, write posts that don't fini[2] ENDCHAR

  1. For the eagle eyes out there: there are a few blog posts preceding that one, but I had published those on Medium, before deciding on bringing them back to my own website later on. ↩︎

  2. Nah, just kidding. I won't be a meanie and leave you hanging. Long story short: happy anniversary to this website, yay! ↩︎
