⌨️ Blogging

I’ve had a personal blog since 2008. You can browse my full archives at sliwinski.com. I’ve set up this blog very recently and I’ll be migrating my old blog posts to here in the future.

My best blog posts of 2018

As I launched this new site I decided to gradually import and review all my posts from my previous blog. I’ve already imported 2019 posts and just today I finished moving over the posts from 2018. I’ve found quite a few gems in there.

My best blog posts of 2019

In July of this year (2020) I switched to this new site at Michael.team from my old blog at Sliwinski.com. I basically created a whole new blog from scratch. Now I’m slowly migrating my old posts. During the migration I’m also reviewing the content, fixing some issues, and just making sure these old posts are still relevant and make sense. It’s a semi-manual process, aided by some smart Siri Shortcuts. Today I finished migrating all of the posts from 2019 and I decided to publish this list of some of my best writing from last year.

Small/big font and the magic of Sass and CSS on my blog

One of my favorite parts of this new blog project is re-learning new/old technologies. At Nozbe I don’t code anymore but programming still brings me joy so over here I get to learn modern JavaScript and CSS and HTML5 again. It’s cool to discover that most modern browsers support the latest technologies and it’s also exciting to see how the web conventions have developed over the years. Today let’s talk about styles, CSS and Sass.

My new site Michael.team launches today!

Today is the day when I’m finally launching my new home page. I know, who cares about a “home page” anymore in 2020? Well, I do, and below I’m going to explain to you, why I do care so much about it. Anyway, new blog, new address, new technology, lots of new things. Here are the details:

☑️ ⌨️ Why “lessons learned” is better than just “lessons” - or how I edit my writing…

Why “lessons learned” is better than just “lessons” - or how I edit my writing…

On the first day of this year I wrote about my best nine IG photos. I really liked how the photos turned out so I decided to report on them and describe them briefly on this blog… and when I wrote and published the post I was happy that I’ve done just that… but I wasn’t quite happy how it turned out. Now I know why:

☑️ ⌨️ Consistency is key to productivity. How I started blogging every weekday.

Consistency is key to productivity. How I started blogging every weekday.

I’ve always struggled to blog consistently. And in May I just posted 1 (yes: one) blog post. And it’s not like I didn’t have things to post about. I’ve always had a whole backlog of drafts, recordings, etc. So I set my goal for June: post every weekday. And I can write with pride that I managed to pull that off. And I keep posting. Check my archives. Here’s how I did it (one step/post at a time):
