Like Why blog at all? (and indieblog.page) - Jan-Lukas Else...

"Although I am rather introverted, I somehow have a need to communicate."

I can identify with this.

"My blog legitimizes that I spend so many hours developing the software behind it."

Haha! Ain't that the truth.

I'll be the first to admit that the code for /reader (and most of (b)log-In) is actually quite a mess

Some people 'talk to think' — they open their mouths and form their opinions as they talk through things, finally arriving at an answer.

That's what I'm like coding something. I won't have a plan as such, just a starting point and a rough direction. As I start to code the ideas about what to do next begin to manifest based on what I'm doing. I go from A to B to C without knowing that C was ever an option, it just becomes one as things develop.

Each feature and function leads the way to the next, and the next — because of this, that can/should/must happen. And because of this the code, is a mess as each piece is added, tacked on with the digital equivalent of sticky tape and bubblegum.

It could all fall apart at any moment!

That’s what I’m like coding something. I won’t have a plan as such, just a starting point and a rough direction.

That’s how I develop as well. 😄 First I have a rough idea of how to implement something and while I’m programming or afterwards, I think of a better way and rewrite quite a bit. The plan I had in the beginning is rarely what it looks like in the end. And sometimes something doesn’t work, so you try all kinds of things until it does work.

"The fluidity of the mind is of the same family as the fluidity of being. Sometimes they coincide sharply. We call that a revelation." — Etel Adnan.
