Why I Blog
Each day, on this road less taken, I learn a lot by reading tech articles, documentations, solving daily challenges faced at work and listening to podcasts from great minds which I rarely document.
I've learnt that writing improves one's thought process through research and documentation and helps to reinforce one's knowledge. Over time, I've also learnt that the adage
What will be will be
does not apply to all scenarios. A better adage would be,
What we want to be, we make it be.
I also love this quote by Steve Jobs,
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Sequel to this, I have finally chosen to start this blog, an intellectual journal. Each time I type
git push and hit the Enter key letting the CI build pass, I let my thoughts out to the world to be read by probably a lot of people.
I hope to become more disciplined on this journey and grow to become who I really want to be and help lives, one at a time.
Wondering who I am?
I'm Chiamaka, a Software Engineer building usable products in the city that never sleeps - Lagos, Nigeria.
