100 Days of Gatsby

1 January 2020

It's not about the time that you put into a project. It's about the time you dedicate to repetition and improvement.

I'm not the best developer. I'm not the best marketer. I'm not the best designer.

But I'm working at it constantly.

You never know what's going to happen. You never know when creativity is going to strike. You never know if today is the day when everything clicks. That's why repetition always wins. Because if you consistently create to the best of your ability every single day, then at the very least, you'll have a consistently high number of mediocre blog posts, products, songs, insert whatever you're creating here.

I'm not usually one for 100 days of blank. It's not usually in my wheelhouse, it's not what I'm looking to dedicate my time to right now, it's not for me, etc.

Just Do It.

Every now and then there comes a time when putting things off isn't on the table. I'm creating a couple client websites and wanted to have more control over React components, Layouts, and content. Enter Gatsby.

I already had went through the Gatsby tutorial, but hadn't put any time or thought into building something out beyond the basics of what the docs addressed.

So I built this website. I'll be adding to it, this post, and more as the days go on. But in the meantime, it's great to do something.

👋 Until next time folks.
