From a Thought to a Post

It’s been quiet on the blog for the last few months. A stark contrast to the bustling world of ideas in my head and the drafts in my text files.

Back in January, I wrote about blogging without overthinking. Looking back, that post seems almost prophetic. Despite my intentions, I’ve found myself caught in the very trap I aimed to avoid. I have plenty of topics I want to write about, but finding the right time and the right words can be challenging, especially since I write in English, which is not my native language.

Perhaps I should, from time to time, write in French. I love writing in English because I enjoy it and it’s the best language for being read widely and engaging in discussions. But what’s the point if I don’t write at all? After all, it’s better to write in French than not to write anything.

With these thoughts in mind, here are a few examples of topics I would like to explore and write about:

  • The nostalgia of Google Maps and Google Street View
  • Rediscovering the Game Boy
  • A simple iPhone
  • White noises
  • My favorite macOS applications
  • The focusing power of video game music
  • E-mails (a medium I love)
  • How I use AI in my blogging process
  • Thimbleweed Park (a video game)
  • Footers in web design
  • Things (the Cultured Code application) and the workflow I use
  • My journey through blogging (I wrote my first blog post in 2004)
  • I made a card game

And a few more…

These topics are scattered across various text files, ranging from simple post title drafts to a few paragraphs. Now that I’ve written this list, I hope to find the will to write about these topics, without overthinking, whether it’s in English or in French.

There. I wrote and published something. At last!
