100 Days of Code: Day 49

Home / Technology / Web Development / 100 Days of Code: Day 49
My mind is a wander-land, I am grateful for my blog and the tech blogging community that I've only just begun to discover, and another chunk of this JavaScript section is in the books.

I’m thinking of changing things up a little bit as I am finding the there are more and more things intertwining or not being inherently good or bad.

This might not make any sense, but I don’t even see the struggles as being particularly “bad” anymore as I tend to learn much more from those things.

Today’s Coding Challenge | My Mind is a Wander-land

Do you ever have one of those days where you feel like your mind is 100 places all at once? That’s exactly how I felt today. Every time I tried to work on one thing, my brain kept pulling me in another direction. It was a fight just to get through the Object Oriented Programming in JavaScript section, but somehow I managed.

At least I am feeling much better today. I switched up my allergy medicine and it seems to be helping a lot more already. We’ll see how much of a difference it makes in the next few days or if it is just a coincidence that I am feeling better.

Blogging

I’ve struggled to find my place in the blogging community over the past few years. There have been times when I felt like I was a part of it all, like during last year’s NaBloPoMo challenge. But there are also times when I am reminded that I don’t write about the things that most of my online blogger friends write about. I’m not a mommy blogger or a beauty blogger or a fashion blogger. I’m not good at makeup or fashion or baking pies.

Actually, I’m not bad at baking pies, but that’s not what I do on a daily basis.

My whole life, I have felt like I am different from everyone else around me. I am weird. I am too old, too young, too much of a cynic, yet somehow overly sensitive and optimistic at times, and I often feel out of place in my surroundings. Despite my best efforts, I started to feel the same way about blogging. I was completely disconnected and felt like I wasn’t truly being heard.

So, when I first started my coding adventure, I was a bit hesitant to start blogging about it.

First off, I didn’t want to chase off the few people who have started following my blog because of the things I was typically writing about in the past. It was mostly lifestyle/entertainment/happiness-related, and I knew that this whole coding experience was going to be very different.

Secondly, time is our most precious, valuable resource. I didn’t want to waste it blogging every day if no one was ever going to read my posts or care. I had to think about what I wanted, what I hoped to achieve, by blogging. Popularity? Money? Respect?

It finally hit me. I’m not blogging to become famous or rich or make other people like me. I am blogging because it is a creative outlet, a way to express myself, and a way to voice my successes and failures. If there’s the chance that anything that I say might one day help someone, I am satisfied. I hope that someone will read about my journey and realize that they have it in themselves to follow the same path.

I am happy to admit that I’ve found a small blogging community of my own with other tech bloggers and I am starting to discover other people who post a lot of real-life content. So, I’m going to keep doing what I am doing. I am learning so much about myself in the process.
