Missing Opportunities, Life and a Little Hackathon

[ Insert exciting header here ]

It’s been a while since my last post and many things happened since we first encounter our local competition.

What’s the point of managing a personal journey blog if I’m not going to be honest? In spite of all the motivation, working and watching your competition is kind of depressing and definitely takes away your focus. At first, it’s scary Continue reading

Protect your blog

I am famous… Oh, not yet?

So I was checking my daily statistics to make sure that Google bot, Bing bot and Yandex bot checked-in today. And “my oh my” what do I see? hundreds of visits and tens of visitors. “Well, that happened before, when my post got retweeted several times” – I thought to myself. So I decided to check what those visitors are reading.

They were reading ‘/xmlrpc.php’. At this point, I realised I am being attacked. Continue reading

Learning AngularJS, Twitter bootstrap, PS and PSD2HTML

A lot to learn – AngularJS, Twitter Bootstrap, PS, PSD2HTML ,etc.

Cognitive dissonance

In the last few weeks, I’ve been learning a lot about Photoshop, Bootstrap, AngularJS, PSD to HTML, and CSS, and probably a bunch of other stuff that just bounced off my brain.

Learning is awesome. Usually on job training means that you’re trying to learn the minimum necessary to understand, implement it, test it, go live.If something is broken, you learn the minimum needed to fix it and get back to the million other things on your plate. Now I finally have the opportunity to really sit, learn and practice.

On the other hand, when clock is ticking and is money slowly decreasing, sitting and learning might make you feel idle and unproductive. When I’m in that position I always hear a little voice inside me saying, “Learn now, because later you won’t have that luxury!” Meanwhile, another voice yells, “Are you freakin’ insane? Start coding!”

If you’re like me, you can’t just read a book. You need something more visual to learn. So here are some of the better online resources that I’ve used and what I think of them (Warning: many of them are not free – like most of the good stuff in life.)

Learning a lot is part of the fun

The “quit your job” Lie

How to use other people

Just finished listening to an episode of the Suitcase Entrepreneur. I hear Jeff talking, and all I can think is – “what a freaking fraud“.  As if quitting your job is a perfect solution for everything. There were always  people who benefitted from other people’s “pain”. In today’s world, it’s easier than ever. All you have to do is start a podcast or a blog, sell your coaching system, sell your eBooks and sell your webinars. And you don’t even have to look for an audience – suffering people will find you. You just have to sell them “No time to see your family? Quit your job and start your business!” ,”Can’t fly to an exotic island for one-month vacation? No problem – quit your job and start your business!”,”Hate working for other people?! Well, this is your lucky day, quit your job and start your business!”
