I'm working on some new blog posts
I know it’s been a while since I last published something on my blog. In fact, this year I have only published three posts while my initial plan was to have roughly 8-10 posts so far.
There are several reasons why I didn’t publish a new post every week but the most important one is that none of the drafts I have felt like they were something I wanted to get out there.
When I satrted writing weekly in 2019 I had plenty of ideas in my head. I had many things to say, and I felt like a lot of this content was relevant to many developers.
And of course, as I published these posts it became harder and harder to come up with the next one; there are only so many things I have to say that fits a weekly blog post format.
That’s why I’ve spent a lot of time on figuring out what I want to publish next, and how I can make sure I regularly publish content on my blog, and I think I have a good idea of what I want to do.
I’m currently working on a series of posts about Swift’s Codable protocol.
I think Codable is something a lot of us are familiar with but not many of have really mastered it. It’s a powerful protocol (or rather a union of two protocols) that’s easy to get started with while also providing powerful customization points.
Depending on how this goes, I might try and publish more of these series. I think a series of posts is a nice way to help folks grow from a beginner or intermediate level for a given technology all the way to an advanced level. It’s almost like a mini-book where every chapter is a post.
I’m not entirely sure how I’ll roll this series out just yet. I’ll probably publish one or two articles a day or maybe one every couple of days once I’ve drafted all the posts.
This will mean that posts won’t be published on a given day every week. Instead, I’ll be rolling now content out in bursts.
I look forward to seeing how this pans out, and I’d love to know what you think of this idea!
