Order of Operations:

  1. Create website

  2. Release first YouTube Video

  3. Start first project

  4. Write first blog post on first project

These are the main points of the plan. So far I’ve set the site up. Although it’s all pretty much default using Stackbit. DEV as headless CMS combined with Jekyll as static site generator.

I want to add some custom styles, maybe. And add a page for projects. But that’s pretty much it. I just want something functional, and as I was looking to use Jekyll with Github pages anyway stackbit with DEV was the perfect solution. Which brings me onto the point about how I want to approach this project:

Iterative and Adaptive: I’m going to put stuff out, revise it, improve it, as I go. In the past I’ve spent too long planning projects and thinking everything has to be fully thought-out. Not this time.

NEXT STEP:

I’ve been working on the first YouTube video for my channel.

I recorded one but it was genuinely horrific 👻. More pauses than a game of musical chairs and sounded like I was either falling asleep or had just woken up.

So I am going to do it again better, make it shorter, snappier, with a bit more conviction, and get it published.
