Not another blog! That's what I thought initially. Surely, there are enough blogs around the web, covering every single topic one can think of. You know what? I don't care. This blog isn't even meant to be read by any people. There is a variety of different reasons why I started it.
Before I started planning this blog out, I asked myself:
"Yo, do you really want to invest hours of your life starting this blog? Why don't you just watch Netflix?"
Since I'm quite pragmatic in making such decisions, I divided my reasons into two categories: Purpose and Goals.
- Learning by writing
- Improve my English skills
- Enforce a productive structure onto my chaotic student life
- Have some place to display my projects and to write about them
- Watch less Netflix (that's a hard one, let's be honest)
- Create a library of knowledge such that I can come back here, should I forget something (screw that forgetting-curve)
- Inspire people to study computer science (it's great)
- Motivate myself to study more CS topics in depth ("learning in public"-concept)
- Articles in tutorial form
- To be published in a biweekly to monthly manner
- Student life
- Computer Science
- Everything my degree covers
- Everything that interests me
- Swift development since that's what I'm going for atm
- Artificial Intelligence
- Basically every CS student having a blog (they made me want to have one too)
- Tania Rascia's blog (thank you for making your gatsby theme open-source)
Well, that's it for now. I'm excited, how all of this will turn out eventually. Writing all of this while having lots of time (due to COVID-19) will be totally different to maintaining this blog once the next semester has started. I guess, I'll just have to watch some of Ali's videos to keep myself motivated and to stay productive!
