Turns out my content is doing REALLY well right now on my AI blog. I've not had a lot of time for blogging in January, but it's worked well!

How about "holy carp"? ;) And thank you! Still a WIP, I'd like to redo the colors - but it's been a real fun exercise
Hahaha! "Holy carp" is perfect. And oooo yeah, I bet you could do some cool stuff with the colors.
Been an exhausting week. Interviewed to 3 podcasts.
Moderated a panel at a conference. Talked at a local meetup, was supposed to talk for 50 minutes but took 90 and was cut off after 75% of the talk. But it was a great and very engaging talk.
Did a few new videos but not as much as I normally do but this one was nice.
My book is the number 1 new release on the debugging category.
Passed 1k subscribers on YouTube.
Just gonna enjoy the weekend and try to recharge for next week.
This week has been amazing:
I made some progress on a "Mortal Kombat Strategy" interactive strategy guide. That's a project I used to dream up when I was a kid and CD-Roms were cool. It has been a blast.
I also started a Substack to blog about lessons learned on the way and get some content out there for potential employers or clients.
It was a good week so I'm going to work ahead a bit for my tomorrow-goals. Then I'll make mixed drinks and enjoy WWE's Royal Rumble.
Thanks for the post. It's good to intentionally focus on the positive from time to time. Especially in today's crazy world of divisive politics, war, and the recent wave of tech layoffs.
Sadly got badly sick, but took advantage of the free time and built my first custom keyboard! (after around 2 years of waiting)
That's also why I haven't really posted a new article in a while, but hopefully will get back to it better than ever!
Became a dev.to mod for #rust, #serverless and #containers tags. 🔥
I published my first post on dev.to 😊
1: I made through my first Gitlab Tech writing hackathon
2: I got the 1 Week Community Wellness Streak
What's your win @michaeltharrington?
Hey Christine! Great to hear from you again here and congrats on your wins. 🙌
I think my big win last week was that I did a bunch of planning for the quarter.
One of my goals is to bring on many more trusted members and tag mods who can help us to enforce our Code of Conduct and better organize the site so that folks can find all the things they're looking for. Which by the way, would you be cool with me granting you the trusted member role? You've been so friendly to me here and to folks in the welcome thread (and other places on DEV also!). You seem like a really kind, helpful person — exactly the type of person that we like to give this role to. To be clear, we don't have any hard expectations, just that you continue to be kind and inclusive to others and report any spam or bad behavior on the site when ya see it. Let me know if you'd be cool with this!
I've started on a new project relating to Latin and Python!
I've also gone back to blogging and will hopefully be more active on dev.to again
