People sometimes ask what’s the point of blogging. What’s the secret of being consistent and what’s the motivation behind such activity? And what are the profits? A few weeks ago, Andrzej Krzywda (owner of arkency.com) asked his followers on Snapchat to send him a reason why they’re blogging (or not). I put some thoughts into it, and here is my answer.
21st April of 2017, almost 10 PM on the clock and 14 hours left till I get to my hometown of Kraków from Warsaw where I had participated in a Channel9 “Thursday with .NET” episode recording a day before. We had almost 2 hours talk about .NET Core along with lots of examples, it was a very nice experience indeed. And today I met with a friend of mine to discuss the premium course that we will be recording within the next few weeks.

Welcome to 2017 my dear folks! New year, new me – right? Not entirely correct, as I’d rather paraphrase this sentence to sound more like “new year, new projects (and tons of new code)”. Wondering what I’d like to achieve within the next 365 days (or make it 364 to be precise)?
Time goes by whether you like it or not (unless you’re a photon). So is 2016 about to finish – the year that was one of the biggest breakthroughs not only in my career but also in life so far.
When someone talks about the diversification, it’s usually about financial assets. Every investor will tell you, that you should spread your investments amongst different sources of possible income.
