On blogging for 3.5 years

I’m blogging every day since January 2018. It’s a long time. About 3.5 years.

What keeps me going?

One thing I like to say is, half joking, that I’m trapped into this blog.

I wrote for so long that I. can’t. stop.

I would hate waking up the day after, saying “what have I done?????”. I’m on a streak, and I want those 3.5 years to become 5, 10, 20.

Some days it’s very easy to write. I just work on something and find a thing worth sharing. Maybe that day I find 10 things worth sharing.

Some days it’s just hard. I want to write only about what excites me, otherwise it feels like a job.

But in the end I can’t just write about what I feel like. Sometimes I take tangents into topics that are unrelated to the main topic of Web Development which I do, like my deep dives into Arduino, Electronics, or Swift.

Still programming related, of course. I also do write posts like this, sometimes, which are very meta, more related to blogging than to programming.

But I also feel that I can’t write about JavaScript forever. Or can I? Maybe. Maybe not.

Maybe one day I will just stop, and I’ll more on to other things.

But not today.

One more thing! ⚠️ ✋

At the end of January I will organize the Web Development Bootcamp.

It's a 10-weeks long cohort online course where I will guide you to becoming a Web Developer.

It's not "just a course". It's a big event I organize once a year.

We'll start from zero, learn the fundamentals of Web Development, HTML CSS, JavaScript, Tailwind, Git, using the command line, VS Code, GitHub, Node.js, we'll then learn React, JSX, how to use PostgreSQL, Astro, Next.js, Prisma, deploying on Netlify/DigitalOcean/Fly/Vercel and much more! 

At the end of the first 10 weeks you'll know how to create web sites and web applications and I'll unlock you the 2nd phase of the Bootcamp: you will get access to a large number of projects exclusive to the Bootcamp graduates, so you can follow my instructions to build things like private areas with authentication, clones of popular sites like Twitter YouTube Reddit, create e-commerce sites, and much much more.

Because once you got the fundamentals, you only learn by working on real, exciting projects.
