init (git it?)
Today is the start of something new. Let me explain –
At the start of each year I set one resolution that will take a year to complete. Last year, for example, I resolved to run 2016km (1252 miles). That’s 3.4 miles. Everyday. I met my goal.
This year is going to take things in an entirely different direction. I resolve to become a web developer by the end of 2017.
To achieve this ambitious goal I devote at least 30 minutes per day to working on the project. Most days I get so focused on finishing a segment that I spend 2+ hours after work learning. With the skills I’ve developed over the past month I am feeling confident in my skill set — which brings me to the beginning. Today is the start of something new.
I bought my own website today. It’s not much right now, but it’s mine.
I intend to turn it into a portfolio of my work showing off all I can bring to the table. Along the way I’ll be updating this blog for self-reflection as well as a log to record progress. Perhaps you too are getting started with coding. I hope this blog serves you well and inspires you to continue what you’re doing.
