I started my Youtube channel, made a few posts on Dev.to and lost another pound of weight. I'm getting closer and closer to my goal weight and healthier life.

Hi Gwyneth, I just found your Happy Friday and eh I say that to peeps hoping that I haven't bummed them out as they might have to work the weekend. ;o)
I subbed your youtube channel and wanted to say if you include lots of search terms and hashtags like #condenewbie #womenwhocode #100daysofcode etc that will help you with the searches and though I like your header image I think you could do better (what guitar is that on the wall, looks nice but it's hard to tell with so many makes these days), not being critical just a few thoughts. Have fun!

I don't have a name yet, I think you need 100 subscribers in order to get a custom name and URL, but here is the link youtube.com/channel/UCbjgKwnWnGG7s... thanks for possibly watching :)

This week I finally put an application using Elastic search in production! I've worked with it on another project but was never able to actually put it into production. I now have it running and it works really well. That's the second new technology I've put into production this year. Even after 4 years I'm still learning new things every day!

I found a apartment to share near the college, so I'm planning to move again. I also have a chance to participate in a project of developing a software for the college (I'll have to wait for the the interview). I'm pretty excited with that.

  • I wrote my first dev.to post for #TheyCoded.
  • I applied for three more developer jobs!
  • I cleaned and organized my work area so it was easier to sit down and focus on getting my work done.
  • I reached out to people I worked on group projects with and asked if they'd be interested in working on them more with me which was hard because I've got a lot of social anxiety. They agreed and we're going to clean up our project and make some improvements!

Also, I did a refactor on a messy codepen, now is good.

I wish I knew a secret formula, but I think good promotion helps.

  • Make sure to have pictures/GIFs near top of your README demonstrating your project.
  • Let relevant subreddits know of your project, check out the subreddits I used for my repo on the repo page!
  • Post on producthunt, a large influx of traffic actually came from producthunt for me as my post got #4 product of the day.

I conducted a React Workshop (that I've been preparing for months) to university students and it went great!

I'll make a post about it at some point but here's the link for now if anyone is interested:

This week I felt like I was stuck in a rut with my writing, I couldn't think of any good or "fun" topics to write about and I didn't think my post on styled-components would do very well (because I'm sure lots of other people have written about it already) but it didn't do too badly so that's my win for the week!

This week..Since I lost one of my biggest prospective clients on UpWork. I learned that I have to be more detailed in creating a project timeline/schedule for the client to understand non-technical things.

Prediction and explanation are tough arts to master. Kudos to you for framing a disappointment constructively!
