6 Months or 184 days

So, I posted every day for the last 6 months. Starting with my post I decided to start again:

Yup, this will happen. I try to post one post each day. Could be about anything. I just want to write again. I just don’t care anymore. I’m not trying to build some great one topic blog. I will write about whatever I want to write. You may read it or not. Action!

And I did it. I thought about changing it up. Let’s take a look at the stats. I’ve written 184 articles since then with about 80 – 100k words in total (which is about as much as a book). My solutions to the Algorithm Design Manual still generates the majority of the traffic of this blog.

Some of the more successful blog post I’ve written in this time were:

Also other articles about:

  • Using the Web Audio API which resulted into a big project (with over 50k visitors per month)
  • Writing Reddit bots
  • Article about
  • Keto
  • More Flup

If you look at these posts you see that they are all some kind of project – with a few expectations – technical ones.

In the week I transferred some of my really old blog posts to this blog – or rather those which were archived. And I remember how much fun it was to write those.  And this made me thing about changing my blog a bit.

I have a bit of a backlog which I will clear out over the time but for the future I can imagine pretty much the same as now but without the filler content. That means,

  • Doing book exercises
  • Write short workarounds, tutorials or hacks if I have a problem for which there was clear no solution
  • Book summaries / notes with commentary
  • Writing about projects
  • Some thoughts / observations

This stuff takes me some time therefore I will reduce the posting frequency because splitting I don’t like splitting posts up in multiple smaller posts. I also have tons of notes on books from 2013. I think it wouldn’t be bad if I would dump those – just for the sake of completeness. Also I have an other batch of book exercises. I want to post at least once a week. I think that it will be higher on average. Great, let’s see how that works!
