Part of the reason I have not written a new blog post in over a month is because I was on a holiday and that too in a place where I did not have the best internet connection. The other part is that I am trying to make my next technical blog post more captivating than my previous posts.
What prompted the initiative to write more engaging posts?
During my holiday I met someone new and during the introductory phase I asked her “so what do you do?” to which she replied, “I am a content writer” and I thought, WOAH! Prior to meeting her, I had never met anyone who did that, I mean the concept of “content writer” was new to me. So as usual when presented with a new concept, I try to analyse it and think more about it. I though hmm, if there is a job dedicated to it, then content creation is something that shouldn’t be ignored. I was thinking about all this in the context of my blog and the posts I write i.e. the content I create on my blog. The conclusion to all my thinking was that in addition to having relevant content, I should present the information on my blog in a way that, provides a unique reading experience so it can benefit readers that know and don’t know about the content.
What about my next technical blog post?
I have been writing my next technical blog post for a little over 20 days and a number of things can be blamed for this delay,
- My holiday: at least 15 out of those 20 days were part of my holiday. I started working on the next post when I was on holiday, so as expected I wasn’t terribly productivity at that time.
- Change in scope: when I first started writing my next post it looked very different from what it looks now. After I met that “content writer” and as I kept writing the post, I kept getting new ideas on how to present the information in my next blog post.
When will the post for JavaRestfulBackend be published?
