In 2004 I began this blog. I don’t mean to be overly dramatic, but it changed my life. Everything that comes after was made possible by this blog.


Atwood, Jeff. “About Me.” Blog Post. “Coding Horror” programming and human factors. 02 Feb 2004. Web. 24 Jan 2022.


This excerpt is on Jeff Atwood’s “About Me” page as the first bullet point in a timeline of notable career milestones & accomplishments.


I just love this quote 😍.

Atwood wrote six posts a week “in utter obscurity” for a year.

I come back to it (and the subsequent link in it) every few months. It inspires me.
