Why bother with a blog. A custom one at that. More work than pen and paper. I am better off with pen and paper or use a note taking app to write shit for myself.
Then I remember, this blog is a great way to test software ideas on. Deploys from my custom deploy software have been spot on and easy. Just upgraded to Fastify v3 after making my own decorators since fastify-decorators doesn't play well with other dependency injectors. Not sure why they added their own. Seems pointless given the other ones out there. Nonetheless, it was a blocker and it is gone!
This blog is also a great place for me to brag, so I don't have to brag to anyone in particular.
Great for throwing what I think out there. Call me old fashioned, but I don't have Twitter or FB.
Great for me to vent at times since there are times I am pissed off or not feeling like I am doing too well. Helps calm me down or lift me up.
Great place to remind myself of things I like or liked.
Helpful posts here and there according to visits that i see. One has been particularly dominating.
I just like to write more than anything else. I write for myself rather than any particular audience so that frees me from trying to talk in a certain way. I mean not too filtered or unfiltered for public posts anyway.
Still think pen and paper or text editor is easier though.
