Adding Github Gists
I was reading an article a while back with tips on starting a tech blog and keeping it going and one of the suggestions listed was to use Github Gists for your code samples. The main argument was that they were easy to use and accessible. I thought I would give Gists a try, just to see how they worked. Of course, nothing is ever that simple.

What I've Been Reading - October 20, 2019
I'm sitting here watching Booksmart and remembering what it was like to be a completely nerdy girl in high school. And I'm sure absolutely zero people are surprised that I was a complete nerd in high school because I am now, at 40 years of age, a completely nerdy woman sitting on her couch writing blog posts about the articles she's read. And I'm totally OK with that. Because I read some interesting shit this week.

My reading was a bit all over the place this week, but these were the articles I felt were worth sharing. There are so many more I tagged to read, but wasn't able to get to. Just one of those weeks.

I love being surrounded by books, having all those minds and stories to dive into and learn things from. But I have a couple of shelves in my office next to my desk where I rotate out a smaller group of books that I want to have immediate access to.

What I've Been Reading - August 11, 2019
It's been a rough week here in Dayton. A week ago, we woke up to the news that in less than 30 seconds a man managed to kill nine people and wound almost 30 others in a popular downtown district. I don't know how to internalize that or what else to say about that. There are no words for that kind of horror. Anyway, here are some things I read this week. Maybe they'll help, maybe they'll distract, though distraction can be a form of help.

I Fell in Love with GraphQL Last Night
When I started, I didn't really know much of anything about GraphQL. And, to be honest, the only thing I really knew about Gatsby was that I could use it to build a static site with React. Plus it works well with the Netlify CMS, which is something I also really want to use. Since then, I've learned a lot. But last night, my knowledge of GraphQL took a leap forward and now I really love it.
