Time flies when you’re over 25. Years, not posts. I started this blog two years ago and it feels like it was 3 months ago, max. The past post was my 100th. Even though I feel like I haven’t learned all that much, after 100 pages of content, I must have some lessons learned, right?
Here’s a list of 10:
