How It All Began
Start from the beginning…
Once a upon a time, I used to live on “Someday I’ll”, an island in my mind where I spent a lot of time fantasizing on things I like to do “someday” or at some point in my life.
I enjoyed taking long rides on the island; and whenever I was ran out of gas, I would stop at a gas station called “Procrastination” and fill up my gas tank with “Excuses”.
I always dreamt of starting a blog when I was at “Someday I’ll”. Infact, one of my mentors — Vivian Jokotade, actually created one for me and encouraged me to blog regularly but I abandoned it after a couple of months because it wasn’t important to me so I made all kinds of excuses for my inconsistency.
Oh how she laughed at me when I told her I have to blog on a weekly basis for my program at The Iron Yard. Yep! she said those words “I told you so”. That is how I started writing and posting articles on Medium. If I wasn’t vaulted out, I’ll probably still be living in “Someday I’ll”.
If you choose not to be motivataed by the person you can become, then you can wait until you have to be that person either to save your life or as a requirement to get to the next level in life. Motivation is real people! Whenever it becomes important to you, you will make time for it; just like I do now with blogging.
So in case you read any of my technical posts or code blocks don’t be surprised; I am just fulfilling my program requirement. Hopeful this habit of writing will stick long after I graduate from code school.
Long Live Software Bloggers!
