Some of the best blog posts I’ve written, and many of the most helpful blog posts I’ve read, are in the “notes-to-self” category. When I’m struggling to perform some technical task it’s always helpful to read how someone else solved the same problem.
Here’s the best part: Anyone can write a notes-to-self post. It does not have to be polished and professional. (You don’t even have to grammar or spell good!) As long as you list the steps you took to overcome the issue, you’ll have:
- A handy reminder to yourself next time you have to perform the task
- And you’ll help someone else in the process. Paying knowledge forward FTW!
