This month I published four episodes of my Podcast. We are in the middle of season three, which has been about the basic building blocks of writing: words, sentences and paragraphs.
- Write While True Episode 33: Collect Sentences
- Write While True Episode 34: Word of the Day
- Write While True Episode 35: Zombie Nouns
- Write While True Episode 36: Stack of Paragraphs
I rediscovered PlantUML. I had dismissed it because I thought the setup was too complex. Then I realized that I mostly want diagrams in Confluence and that there was a plugin that let me do that easily. There are also lots of online editors, so there’s no reason to run it locally.

- When to Code a Diagram
- PlantUML is Byzantine, but I’m OK With That
- PlantUML Cheatsheets
I made journals with prompts for guiding morning pages. To do that, I added a lot more features to Page-o-Mat (a tool for creating journals). Then, I used it to create the cover and inner-page PDFs that I used to make the book on Amazon KDP.
I wrote some more posts on software job hunting
- Job Seekers Should Have Some Linked In Activity
- How to Signal That You Are Open to Work on Linked In
- 1960’s GE Trained Programmers
- Using Recruiters for Entry Level Developers
- It takes very little to stand out
Speaking of how little it takes to stand out, I celebrated Post #500 by sharing some of the ways this blog has impacted my career even though it’s not widely read. The more you put out there, the more chance you have of being found, but anything is better than nothing.
