I have been reading a book called Show Your Work (https://www.amazon.ca/Show-Your-Work-Creativity-Discovered/dp/076117897X).
This book encourages the reader to show their day to day work process, and what they accomplished on a granular level. I like the idea of the art being the craft and not the product, so I decided to build a blog.
Over the past 2 days I spent roughly 6 hours working on this websites functionality. I've added global state management, themes, login logout functionality, a new nav menu, and of course most importantly a blog.
The idea behind this blog is for me to be able to document my day to day projects for personal review. Others may be interested in reading, but it is mainly a journal for my work and thoughts.
Because all of my blog posts will be stored in a simple SQL database I will be able to carry them over to any platform I move to in the future, or redesign the blog as I see fit.
There is still some fine tuning to do, for instance finding an easier way to record HTML markup in the posting form (I am thinking something similar to Github's README markup) as well as increasing the scope of data that I can record, but overall I think we are off to a great start!
That's all for now!
