What a year it has been. Aside from Covid being on the rise again and being devastating to many in the physical realm, the virtual realm has been amazing.
And what a year it will be, I am sure a lot of good stuff will happen. Such as, Go finally getting Generics in February!
When I started to write on Medium I did not expect anyone to read what I was writing. And to be honest, almost nobody did in the beginning either.
I began writing a year ago on Medium because I wanted to try using gRPC from a frontend application and found there to be a lack of content online on how to do so. All guides out there required the use of a reverse proxy like Envoy, Treafik, or others. I found a solution and decided to write about it, from there it has been a blast.
Writing about programming, technology and sometimes other unrelated stuff has made me improve as a person. I learn so much from it, I enjoy it, and I get relaxed by it.
Now, a year later, it’s pretty fun to look back at all that has happened and use that experience to set new milestones. I like to create measurable goals each year so that I have something to work for.
So a recap of 2021 in the short
* Began writing on Medium * Created my website @ programmingpercy.tech * Reached 400 followers on Medium * Had one viral article (and only) * Published 34 articles * Reached 175k views On Medium * Reached 15k views on programmingpercy.tech
The viral article I had was about 7 VS Code tricks that I found useful that were learned during the year, never thought it would reach so many people. Today it has reached 30k views and 10k reads.
What I aim for in 2022
This year, I will be striving to learn more about AWS, cloud architecture overall and keep writing and trying to become a better author.
I also want to start moving into the Blockchain world more, I think there is a lot of great ideas out there and I want to deepen my knowledge of it. Building more Dapps, or even maybe an NFT based game?
By the end of 2022, I hope that I have reached the following goals.
* 1000 followers on Medium (590 to go) * Finished at least one writer’s course * Published 100 articles (Yes, that is a major increase from now) * Found 10 mindblowing use cases for the new Generics in Go * Reach 525k views on Medium (That is 350k new views and would be twice as much from 2021) * Reach 50k views on ProgrammingPercy.tech.
I do hope I can succeed in these goals, and I will have to work hard to achieve them. I can’t wait until 2022s ends to see if I managed to fulfill my goals.
Setting goals is a great way to improve yourself, everyone should do it, and anyone can do it.
What are your goals for 2022?
