Yeep !

I created a page to present what is the Web Monetization.

Awesome Web Monetization โ€” A repository for centralized all cool projects

๐Ÿ•ถ๏ธ Stuffs about Web Monetization. Packages, articles, documentation links and others tools.

favicon awesome-web-monetization.js.org

Web Monetization is a web service that allows you to send money directly in your browser.

This is becoming more and more used on the Internet. Interesting for people to turn to a new payment method for websites such as blogs, videos, newsletters or shared photos whether it is monetized according to the time spent reading/watching. And all this natively on your computer.ยน

If you want more about the Web Monetization, motivation to publish that, know payments/wallets providers and more, you can check WebMonetization.org, the official website .

But you know already what is WM no? This page detected you have got Coil or other payment providers.

I was just writing lots of articles and publishing them on DEV, Hashnode and Medium. Also I was sharing the content on Twitter and LinkedIn. So thats quite a lot of platforms for my content to get noticed.

And then I was getting messages and emails from various companies who were telling me that they had seen and read some of my articles and thought they were great. And suggested a collaboration or guest writer appearance. So these companies contacted me I am yet to reach out to any companies regarding writing roles ๐Ÿ˜…

I write my blog posts for enjoyment. I add affiliate links to some posts, which brings in a little each month.

Noticed an odd trend recently of people referring to "blog posts" as "blogs"... why is this?

Does blog posts & blogs has a difference ?

Well, 'blog' comes from 'web log', and a log has 'entries'. An 'entry' in a 'blog' is usually referred to as a 'post'.

'Blogs' - is just the plural of 'Blog', which in turn is a container for blog posts

Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

The most used technology by developers is not Javascript.

It's not Python or HTML.

It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.
