“The Must-Haves of Our Skillset”

The point I’m trying to make, if anything, is this: If you’re worried that it’s too hard to keep up with the various parts of WordPress, don’t. Instead, focus on the parts with which you enjoy working and then focus much of your time and effort on becoming the best possible developer you can for that area.

I struggle with this constantly. I know I can do development-related tasks well and things adjacent to it. That’s why I have a job. But that doesn’t stop the annoying voice in my head from saying that I’m not doing enough or not smart enough.

Aspects of my professional life do need more development and there’s always room to grow. But it’s hard to keep reminding myself that I’m doing fine and can take things at my own pace.

Here we are again

I don’t know how many times I’ve tried to start a blog, keep it up to date, be interesting. They’ve all failed tremendously after, oh, I don’t know…two weeks?

So I’m not going to keep a blog. Or, rather, you (yes you, the bot indexing this page) shouldn’t consider this a blog. Instead, think of it as a stream of consciousness. Something more akin to Twitter but with context. Because I’ve basically stopped talking on my personal Twitter.

This will be in, some form or fashion, an open Notion notebook. Probably with some tagging and categorizing to go with things. Maybe even some life things.

Because if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that anything can happen.
