About 9 years ago when I started programming, one thing I really enjoyed doing was fully reading the blogs of developers I admired (back then it was the French developers Sebsauvage and Lehollandaisvolant in particular). I would spend nights scrolling through their blog until finally reaching their first posts!
It was really interesting to see how much they had evolved since their first articles and thus was born my love for blogs, people (and programming!).
The second I learned HTML/CSS/PHP (didn’t even learn JS! Was too hard.) my first goal was to make myself a personal website where -just like the developers I admired!- I would write about the things I learned, my thoughts on certain things, my projects etc. My first personal website even used the same CMS the developers I enjoyed reading used! How cool is that!See the full article
