My January '20 in Review

Published on in ✍️ Posts

In the 2019 year review, I have already announced that in the future I want to do a monthly review. I want to reflect on what I have experienced and learned in the past month, what has occupied me and also what I am going to do for the next month. Of course I will not be able to write everything on a public blog, but I will try to be as open as possible. This should also help a little bit as a reminder. So I can look back later on what I did every month.

I just updated my blogroll and thought that it might be a great idea to share my workflow to do exactly that. I use Miniflux a lot. Using Miniflux, I read all the blogs and get all the news, get updates from all the YouTubers and even subscribe to some Mastodon accounts (fediverse microblogs). I use multiple categories to sort the feeds. One of those categories is “Blogs” with all the blogs, which I also list on my blogroll.

It’s nice to spend some time with the family and visit the zoo in Zurich. There were also some Australian animals. They have it probably much better there than their conspecifics in Australia.
