Did you ever realize that it takes some courage to start writing a public blog? That it can be a great experience and a lot of fun? That you might feel you are terrible at writing? I sure didn’t until I started to write this first post. My name is Tom and I’m at the beginning of my journey into web development.
This is one of the many beginnings. I’ve tried many times to break into programming career with little success. I lacked motivation, consistency or maybe a blog? Whatever was the case, I didn’t manage to reach my goal. I believe this time is different, since both my circumstances and reasons for doing it are different. I hope that writing a blog will help me to reach my goal, which is to eventually land a job as a web developer.
Here I will document my thoughts, reflections and most important: my progress. I will document my firsthand experience using some often recommended courses: The Web Developer Bootcamp, The Odin Project, freeCodeCamp and doing my own projects. At the time of writing this post I’m already at 125 video out of 359(!) of The Web Developer Bootcamp and went through few modules of The Odin Project, including Git lessons. This means everything I make I will be able to share with you through GitHub.
My main inspiration for starting this blog is through hearing social figures like Gary Vaynerchuk, or John Sonmez from SimpleProgrammer recommend it over and over again. On top of that reading about success stories how becoming more visible on the web can greatly help with career (and possibly not only) were convincing enough. And hey, it’s fun writing on a blog about what I want and however I want! 🙂
