I have no idea what I’m doing.
This really hit home. If you’re following along, you’ve noticed that I just started blogging with a purpose, passion and schedule on a daily basis. Independently, I arrived pretty much at the same conclusion as Major: All technical people should blog.
Sometimes my conclusions are incorrect. Sometimes the code I post is broken. Sometimes I just plain say something stupid.
But there’s one thing that makes everything worth it, and here’s a picture to illustrate the idea:
It’s a nice feeling knowing that just 1 person is reading your ideas
if just one person finds what I write to be useful, then I’m doing the Right Thing ™. Admittedly, the one person pictured above may be a robot, may have found my blog worthless or incorrect, but the point still stands:
Write because there’s value behind experience.
It’s not easy. Coming up with a new concept or idea is challenging. I don’t possess the most amazing gift for grammar or spelling. I’m not the most technically proficient developer.
But I have years of experience in this field. I have ideas. Someone, somewhere will hopefully find this information useful.
That’s all I could ever really hope for.
