Yikes. Who knows. What a mess. You got your github (microsoft) - and your gitlab for some clients/contract - and your bitbuckets for the other clients... and the private things - and the not private things and the person things... and some old beanstalk things - and a couple random deploybot things - and the work things - and the other work thing that's secret and under another name... so - yeah. Way too much stuff - and also not enough stuff in some cases. Depends who's judging you. PRO TIP: just keep a daily diary - and you can get full green squares ; )

I was mostly discussing the new profile feature, when you have a repo named after you username it can become your profile page now.

I agree though repos everywhere. I tend to like GitHub / GitLab the best. I use Azure DevOps a bit and it feels very corporate red tape, hide a lot of things, and make simple things complicated.

I have my blog backed by git, that's honestly 95% of my green squares. I have some family events that prevent me from getting to it everyday, I am proud that I am able to step away when needed during those times, its not easy for me.

Cool! We didn't see the specifics. Now we'll definitely need to build a funny thing to put there.

agree 💯 One of the reasons I like DEV is that they have removed a lot of the things that cause those negative feelings. I appreciate that.

Definitely marking 🔖 that one for a read later on.

Worth reading, I fell into that hole for quite some time, and it can be really exhausting and un-healthy.

they have removed a lot of the things that cause those negative feelings.

Absolutely, that's the main reason I'm here, instead of other communities.

Mine is full mostly because of my blog. I also appreciate that I can look at the streaks of white and know that I took a healthy break.

That's amazing. NOT working sometimes - seems like a good way to tell if someone is stable!
