Definitely true. It would be just as grave a mistake to pick a job that you hate just because it pays the bills.
I wrote this because I’ve seen way more people playing the “what’s best” game. My hope is that aspiring web developers find something they love and pursue that, and don’t get detracted by the side arguments.
But perhaps I could have had a more balanced approach and, as you said, emphasized that it’s perfectly ok to have favorites. Thanks for your response!
