Writing

I'm just someone, right?

I sometimes write articles. On this blog. On my German blog. Not long time ago, I used to write on Medium. I already spent hours and hours of writing. After writing and publishing something new, I usually share it on social media. My fediverse account and Twitter most often too. But sometimes I am thinking: Is there just anyone getting some worth out of my posts? Is there someone who would even visit and read articles, if I don’t spam my followers on social media?

How I Write Articles On The Go?

When you’re on the go quite often (at university during the week or with the family during the weekends), it’s actually quite difficult to use the spare time you have for writing blog posts instead of fixing bugs or coding new features for your favorite project. That’s why I recently built the habit of writing most of my posts on the go. But how? For my cheap Amazon Fire 7 Tablet I bought a case with a Bluetooth keyboard, which I can also take out of the case and connect it with my smartphone.

I Wasn’t Productive Today, But That’s OK

Writing posts, especially when you just write for the sake of publishing a post, can be really painful. You tensely try to come up with an idea, then you start typing but have to think about every second word. Another bad addition to this is, when you aren’t native English speaker, so you use a translation site and copy every translated sentence over to your editor… It’s like building something, but you directly know it’s bad.
