My last blog post was this article, "6 Java language resources to get you started" also in July 2020, was published over 4 months ago. In just the few of months between "officially" starting my job search in May and that last blog post, I went from publishing a weekly post every Tuesday or Wednesday to every 2 weeks to nothing for 4 months.
It's not that I don't want to write- (the multiple drafts in my dashboard would beg to differ). I just don't know what to write that other people will find helpful.
But then I started learning Java for a really exciting role; so I switched to blogging about Java. The next role required visual basic; so I switched to that for 2-3 weeks. Then it was React and now it's C#.
In between the Java role and the React role, I applied to the Microsoft Leap Apprenticeship Program. Surprisingly, I made it through the interviews and started end August 2020. That's where the C# came in.
Even the things that seem familiar at first glance i.e. XAML are new. So I doubt myself. This isn't imposter syndrome but uncertainty. Every sentence of those draft articles reeks of uncertainty. Publishing them would feel like a case of the blind leading the blind.
