100 Posts for 2021

I am happy to say that as of yesterday, I am back on schedule to have published 100 posts by the end of this year.

The hiatus of posts earlier in the year wasn’t from me not writing anything; in fact, I was writing a lot! But most of the posts were in the My Sweet Setup series, and I had unresolved Mac Pro issues, and it didn’t feel right to post that series until I had that issue resolved (since I consider my Mac Pro to be the lynchpin of my setup).

I’ve had a solid posting streak recently as well! This marks either 20 or 21 days of at least one post per day.

I’ve also pushed myself to publish more things, and hit that Post (or schedule) button more quickly without trying to polish each post to within an inch of its life.

I’m also just trying to post more random stuff that comes to my head. Not everything I post has to be a life-changing epiphany, and if I always hold back on posting stuff because I’m waiting for the perfect thing, I won’t be refining my own writing skills in the meantime.

Anyway, I hope this has been engaging filler content, and this gets me 1% closer to my goal, and it keeps my writing streak going!


My Sweet Setup: writer’s reflections

I’ve got a ton of My Sweet Setup posts drafted and in varying states.

I don’t dig much into engagement or views or anything, but my initial impressions are that no one gives a fuck about my setup.

I’m still reflecting on the writing myself. I think I keep veering too far into trying to write reviews of these products, and that’s not what I am good at nor should be doing. My goal here is to talk about some of my favorite gear and software and what I love about them.

I’m not really doing this for views so I’m not going to A/B test my content within an inch of its life to try to juice up as much engagement as possible; I just want to make sure that I’m writing things that are good in some way, and can possibly be helpful to someone.

I’ve got some queued up to go out throughout the week. I hope you get some enjoyment out of them!
