Weekly Notes

I briefly re-con­nect­ed with my old blog­ging friend The­jesh on his blog this week. We both used to work for the same tech com­pa­ny in mid-2000s. The­jesh is one of the blog­ger who pos­i­tive­ly influ­enced me in the ear­ly days of my career. While I haven’t met him in about 20 years, I enjoy read­ing his blog. In one such recent vis­it to his blog, I noticed he recent­ly start­ed shar­ing week­ly notes. That also remind­ed me of week­ly learn­ings reg­u­lar­ly shared by one of my oth­er blog­ger friends Nick from a dif­fer­ent cor­ner of the blo­gos­phere.

I write this blog pri­mar­i­ly as a jour­nal for my future self. So I believe my future self will sure­ly appre­ci­ate com­pos­ing and shar­ing reg­u­lar week­ly notes! So I am tak­ing the lead of both these fine peo­ple and blog­gers and decid­ed to start shar­ing my own week­ly notes.

I love read­ing blogs espe­cial­ly the ones where peo­ple share mun­dane, ordi­nary things about their lives with­out try­ing to impress any­body. These days all I see on Twit­ter are pitch­es to newslet­ters shar­ing per­son­al devel­op­ment plat­i­tudes, which I have had enough of! That’s why per­son­al blogs con­tin­ue to remain dear to my heart.

I have no idea on what I will share, but I read a lot of blogs and lis­ten to a few pod­casts. So I will start there and share nuggets I find inter­est­ing in the stuff I con­sume online. I will also share an update or two about my per­son­al life with­out reveal­ing too much of my day-to-day strug­gles.
