re: You Can Be a Casual Blogger VIEW POST


Totally, 110% agree -- my posts are super inconsistent and are not proofread that well. I also allow myself to write less technical stuff sometimes, because it's fun to write! I wanted to be a journalist when I was in high school and early college, so this gives me that outlet. I've had some awesome opportunities come up through blogging, but I don't treat it too seriously because I do have a fulltime job and this isn't it! In fact, I've turned down 99% of the opportunities I've had to make money from blogging.


"...are not proofread." Makes for some funny reads though :).


Similar background here, I got used to writing when studying journalism in college and now I can't really imagine any career without it in some form. Coding counts as a different kind of writing, but it's certainly not the same.

Also as much as I love, I agree this isn't my full time job either. Can't write constantly when there's PRs to set and VIM to learn!
