As a mostly self-taught programmer, most of the things that helped me learn programming and understand its concepts is the fact that I applied the concepts I was learning to help solve some actual problems that I was encountering in my day-to-day life.
For the last 2 months or so, I have been meaning to write a blog post. I do not know the topic of the said post, or its content, or anything at all about it. I just know that I have to write something. I also know there’s a lot of valuable thoughts that I have in my mind that need to be put in words, but I cannot bring myself to put them in writing.
Writing simply terrifies me.
So what can I do about it?
So this is me officially putting out the challenge to myself, to venture out to where I fear most, to write more and more until I no longer fear it.
Have you been in a similar situation before, whether with writing or something else, that you know you need to do but it simply terrifies you? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
It is often said that the best way to learn to program or to learn a new language is by using it in a personal project. In this post, we explore why it is wise to listen to this advice.
I have been trying to learn web development for a little over a year, without much success, according to my own evaluation. Why?
We are currently living in a completely new and interesting era. This is an age where a college/university degree is no longer the prerequisite for success it used to be.

After numerous failed attempts followed by months of procrastination, I have decided its time to get in on the action and launch my own blog, my own personal space on the huge phenomenon that is the Internet.
This is something I have wanted to do for a while now and this time no more excuses; not even the lack of a computer (posting from WordPress app) or the exam I should be studying for when writing this are gonna be stopping me this time round.
Hoping that this will be one hell of a journey.
And to cap off a perfect ending to this new beginning, some words of motivation from one of my favourite artists, Emeli Sandé.
You’ve got the words to change a nation
But you’re biting your tongue
You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence
Afraid you’ll say something wrong
If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn
So come on, come on
Come on, come on
