Congrats on finding something that fits you well - even though it took a bit to get there!
I like that this post shows the power of being a bit more public (blogging) - I didn't embrace that until later in my career, and I realized how much it can help with things like career changes (for me, it was my move into freelancing/consulting).
The next step in the process is to package up a bunch of blog posts, and call it an ebook! A lot of people are scared of writing something so "big" - but if you think of an ebook as just 10 or so blog posts, then it becomes a lot more manageable :)
Have you thought of writing an ebook about data engineering? I'm always curious what people think about that suggestion when I give it :)
