I published my first blog post 6 years ago today. I didn’t even notice the fifth anniversary of this blog, so I am going to indulge myself today instead. 277 posts, 3459 (non-spam) comments and over 1.6 million page impressions and I am still here, posting sporadically as time and inspiration allows. Maybe I will still be writing in another 6 years. Maybe not.
Here are some of my favourite posts from the last 6 years, in no particular order:
- The software awards scam
- 10 things non-technical users don’t understand about your software
- If you aren’t embarrassed by v1.0 you didn’t release it early enough
- Where I program
- Unskilled and unaware of it
- The truth about conversion ratios for downloadable software
- Problem exists between keyboard and chair
- 10 questions to ask before you write a single line of code
- Programming in flares
- Interview with a cracker
- How much money will my software make (and what has that got to do with aliens)?
It would be nice to break 2 million impressions. I calculate that this will take approximately another year at the current rate of progress.
I have lots of ideas for new posts. But if there is any subject you, dear reader, would particularly like me to write about – add a comment below. I don’t promise that I will write about it, but I will certainly consider it.
