Feels good to be back

Published Apr 13 2022

Psssst! The 2023 WEB DEVELOPMENT BOOTCAMP is starting on FEBRUARY 01, 2023! SIGNUPS ARE NOW OPEN to this 10-weeks cohort course. Learn the fundamentals, HTML, CSS, JS, Tailwind, React, Next.js and much more! ✨

Long story short, I’m back at daily tutorials on this blog.

Back in January of this year I wrote ”I stopped publishing daily blog posts” where I announced a break from daily publishing, an habit I’ve maintained for 4 years since January 2018.

The reason was that I was preparing the opening of the 2022 cohort of Bootcamp, which signups finished 1 week ago.

I had to 100% focus on that for 2 months, because after the cohorts of 2020 and 2021, I re-did all the course from scratch.

And while I worked full time for 3 months on it, I haven’t still finished all the lessons, but I finished so many of them that I now have a buffer.

Plus, the launch phase is done, so I can just focus on delivering a great course for all participants.

Reading that post I also said I was looking into dedicating more time to YouTube, something I try from time to time until I remember that doing video for me is exhausting. I very much prefer writing to recording videos.

Although video is a medium I love to consume. So it’s still a battle.

Since I declared that “holiday” in January, I posted 5 blog posts.

Not too bad.

But also I didn’t write one post a week as I promised to myself.

I realized doing something weekly is not much of a habit.

Daily is a habit.

Day in, day out, it’s just part of the routine.

But weekly, some weeks I just forgot.

Having a schedule is something that really makes a difference.

And writing is that kind of activity that the more you write, the more you’d write.

It’s like friction. It takes a lot to win static friction, but then it’s relatively easy to push a moving objects with dynamic friction.

One of the few things I recall from physics lessons.

So going back to a daily, consistent schedule is going to be a much welcomed new habit.

I write books for developers 👇🏼
