Congrats! I am in the exact same position. I work tech support and just signed my first freelance front end contract to build a website for a company. I hope it turns into a full-time job like you got

This week, I hit a personal high in daily views on my website (1,604). Most of those views are from organic traffic to a single Python article, so I'm not sure how sustainable it is. Regardless, I'm excited!

Haha it’s true! Thankfully, I’ve been grinding on my site for about two years now, so I’ve grown patient.

This week, I started writing a product feature that was supposed to send emails to users and admins, but I ended up writing a full-blown async messaging bus including database models, delivery status and a batching service ...I hate when this happens.

I released my first js package onto npm called funnl. It's a couple functions that allow users to flexibly pipe operations on data. Any feedback is welcome! If the lil' project piques your interest, or you'd like to see what it can do, you can check it out here: npmjs.com/package/funnl

This week, I... made a nearly functional text editor in Vue.

It's still not done, but it can do a lot of what most online text editors can do:

This week's win is I'm still on vacation. Back to work Monday. It's been a great mind & body recharge for me. Saying the obvious, but vacation is good for you peeps!

Also, snorkeling today, I had an octopus wrapped around my arm. Pretty cool beautiful smart creatures.

And sloths this week as well.

This week, I submitted my second web dev bootcamp project called Tweeter (simple single-page Twitter clone) and received incredibly positive feedback on it :)
