I started this blog 3 years ago with the desire to use it as forcing function for staying relevant in the software industry. As I have been thinking through what it means to succeed in the software industry I've been writing those thoughts down and sharing my imperfect view of the industry with you.
Over the last 3 years I've published 152 posts and had the pleasure of having had 38,000+ readers (that I know of). To that end I feel like I've accomplished what I started out to do. This blog, for the most part, has focused less on opinion and more on learning. I've been able to cover topics such as fundamental data structures, mobile development, as well as leadership and career development.
While this blog has been a great source of joy for me, it's also been a time suck and source of stress making sure I have something ready to post Monday mornings. It's time to take a break. I don't know if it's permanent or temporary. But my goal is to just relax a bit and spend time with my family.
Thanks for reading.
I read your post title and I thought you were writing on the topic of when you should take a step back, reevaluate your goals and perhaps decide to a hiatus. Sad to hear you are ACTUALLY taking a hiatus :) Thanks for all the great posts over the years!ReplyDelete
