Great stuff - I think a lot of us face this, I know I do. And it’s hard to get out of it and not be scared. But we got to just go on our own and be okay with failing and googling.

I've found that reframing the internal monologue is helpful too. Instead of viewing any missteps as a failure, seeing these side projects as pure experimentation goes a long way towards gaining confidence as a developer. Don't be afraid to try new things and break them!
