  • How to Build a Career When It Seems Things Are Going to Shit – Friday Notes 142

    Dang 2020 was a bit of a s*&^-show. People were being laid off at rates that seem unfathomable. While some countries are getting their vaccine on, others are still trying to cope with COVID in most of their population. In the midst of the craziness, there are bills to pay, family that needs care, students […]

  • Knowing Your Value – Friday Notes 141

    Big topic of discussion in a Slack channel I’m involved with is how to ask for and get a raise. Since I manage a few people, and have helped coach many people at many levels of companies to raises, let’s talk about how to think about asking for a raise and selling it to your […]

  • Time Off Comparison Trap – Friday Notes 140

    Last week you didn’t hear from me because I took the week off to ski with my family. Did I have time to write an email, sure I did. Instead of sitting in a chair relaxing after a long ski day, I could have written an email. Instead of napping on Wednesday and Thursday I […]

  • A Product is Good When – Friday Notes 139

    Around the 52 minute mark in [The Pen Addict 451](https://www.relay.fm/penaddict/451) Brad says that you know a product is good when you try other things and you keep coming back to it. Here are the things I keep coming back to. ### Vim I’ve tried PHPStorm, Atom, Sublime Text, TextMate…and so many other code editors. Every […]

  • iPadOS vs macOS – Friday Notes 138

    As you read this I’ve just purchased an M1 MacBook Air for pickup at my local Apple Store. I ended up getting a Rose Gold Air with 8 GPU cores, 1TB HDD and 16GB of RAM. The biggest deciding factor in the 8 GPU cores is that I could pick that one up locally with […]

  • Will I Ever Read That? – Friday Notes 137

    [CJ Chilvers](https://www.cjchilvers.com/blog/reading-is-an-action) talked about reading being an action and while I dismissed the idea at first I find myself coming back to it. Specifically as I find cool sites like [Strong Towns]() which talks about many things I’m highly interested in. This weed I subscribed to the site and was greeted with 10 articles that […]

  • Changes – Friday Notes 135

    A few of you may have noticed that I’ve talked about leading a small team on Twitter. That’s because I was offered and took a job at [Markentum](https://www.growmarkentum.com). I’m now their Director of Web Development. This means, almost nothing to you because you don’t care. You’ve got your own stuff to worry about. I’ll just […]

  • Website Stats as Vanity Metrics – Friday Notes 134

    About 2 years ago I dropped Google Analytics from this site in a move to start divorcing myself from the Big G. [Fathom analytics](https://usefathom.com) was my choice because it was a good privacy respecting option. About a year ago I dropped Fathom as well. While I did look at my analytics, I did nothing with […]

  • What Paths Have you Regretted – Friday Notes 133

    [I had an interesting Twitter exchange with my friend Brian Hogan](https://twitter.com/bphogan/status/1352295637929373696). He lamented Tailwind and what he thinks mostly technical debt that will come along with it. I feel the same way about Tailwind. It feels wrong in all the places it should feel wrong and despite trying to adopt it a few times, I […]

  • Turning Down $20k Projects – Friday Notes 132

    I just turned down a $20k project for a local agency. On top of being a decent chunk of change for the year, this would have raised my profile greatly among many different organizations in the city. I would have also had a direct hand in helping provide information and assistance for local businesses to […]
