My goal is to write a blog post every two weeks, it’s great to stick to a schedule and force yourself to publish pieces even if they are not perfect.
This doesn’t mean that these blog posts are terrible, just that they could need a bit more polish or could cover a bit more of the topic. But I know many people that have dozens of half-finished blog posts in their pipeline, which aren’t just there and so they don’t publish anything for months.
Having a rather strict schedule pushes me to create content early and often, helping me to finalize and write down my ideas on a regular basis.
But sometimes… Well sometimes I’m behind schedule (didn’t write a blog post this week and the week before) and I could force myself to write a blog post, or …
… just climb up a castle and enjoy being around friends, looking into the sunset. A blog post can wait a week, but life can’t:
Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.
Allen Saunders, John Lennon
So go out, visit the world, have friends, and read my blog post on flame-graph construction mid-next week.
