I created this "Maslow's hierarchy of jobs" about 20 years go. Iv'e found to be good guide for when was time to move on (or stay). If you're failing at one or more of the lower 5 levels (pay not likely to continue, getting paid but nobody cares what you do) might be time to find a more productive gig.

You probably won't see this from HR in goals setting and performance management sessions.

@brandonsjournal I love this post. Your summary of what blogging should be reflects my journey and purpose entirely.

I simply love thinking through something, writing it down, reflecting and then hitting the publish button. If one person reads my post; that's wonderful. If more read; even more so. But isn't a joy just to write and enjoy the freedom of expression it brings?

I think it's no coincidence that someone like me, who has worked with computers for over a decade, prefers to own a dumb TV, a blender with mechanical knobs instead of a touchscreen, no "smart home" stuff, etc. I know how computers work, and for that reason I am terrified of them

Today, I checked my stats on my blog and discovered some fellow bloggers had responded to and mentioned my post on Shame and Blogging (brandonsjournal.com/shame-and-) from a week ago.

I gotta say, after years of feeling like I was writing to no one its nice to know that I've found a community of bloggers through Write.as, , and Mastodon that support one another. These past few months have been the most rewarding time I've spent on the internet ever.

I'm still going strong on my . I just don't post every update on here. Today's post was about my first experience with Elite Dangerous last night.

Hey bloggers, keep in mind that the only measure that says if your blog is good or not, is your linking of it.

Do you enjoy thinking of your blog, then it's a good blog, if you associate anything bad with it, you should fix it. Don't feel guilty when your blog isn't perfect for everyone. It's your blog and should be as you like it, not as others like it.

My post on how does work is very popular, so I decided to take some time out to give it a re-write.

Slowly converting family to Linux... my dad has been tinkering with it for a few years on some of his computers, and has come to appreciate it, at least for certain tasks.

And now, I’ve not only convinced my sister to give it a go, but to also pick up a custom desktop build from System76! She blogged a little about it yesterday as part of - check it out at 100daysofhannah.hannahvollmer. 🙂

@roscoeellis I read that you were enjoying Star Trek Discovery. Its one heck of a ride. Like you I approached it slowly because of all the bad reviews but I ended up loving it.
