Looking Ahead to 2023

It's been nearly a year since I last posted, but that's not for a lack of ideas. Rather it's been a year of being busy at work, busy with family, and changing how the two work together.

I'd previously hit a point of burn-out back in 2021 where I was posting once per week, as well as trying to balance my work, family, and personal life. Wanting to avoid that, I've worked hard at building a good balance. It's one which should provide time for me to post more regularly - though I am keen to avoid a particular frequency.

I've put together a dozen or so ideas I want to work through. Some are going to take some time and research; others should be easier for me to get my thoughts and content down.

Some of the things to look out for in the year ahead:

  • Self-hosting versus paid hosting
  • Password Managers
  • Contributing to Open Source
  • Monetising your blog
  • More static site generators
  • Some PHP stuff
  • Some Python stuff

I'll also be bringing my Pi blog into my main blog, possibly migrating blog platforms, and working with Digital.com to bring some of their content to a different audience (though with some of my own opinions). Also look out for the return of Tanuki Tuesday, where I go all fan-boy over GitLab! Yes, I still love the product and want to spread some information about it to a different audience.

There's a busy year ahead, and I've got loads of ideas that I might want to put out there. I just need to find the right balance.
