Reflecting Back on 2022: Why I Switched from Blogs to Journaling

hero image

As we near the end of the year, it's a natural time to reflect on the past and think about the future. This year has been a whirlwind for me, especially with the release of Yukbid earlier this year. I've been so focused on development and improving the user experience that I haven't had much time to write blogs.

However, that doesn't mean I haven't been writing at all. This blog was supposed to be my brain dumping ground, but as the development logs became more proprietary, I realized that I needed a way to document my thoughts and feelings that was just for me. That's when I started journaling. In fact, I've found that journaling has been a great way for me to reflect on my thoughts and experiences during the development process.

Journaling has been a wonderful way for me to process my thoughts and emotions as I work on Yukbid. It's a private and personal space where I can reflect on my successes and challenges, and think about what I want to achieve in the future.

Looking back on the past year, I'm proud of all that I've accomplished with my app. It's come a long way since its initial release, and I'm excited to see where it goes in the future. As I look ahead to the new year, I have big plans for my app and my business. I'm excited to see what the future holds, and I'm committed to continuing my journaling practice to help me stay focused and motivated.

If you're someone who has struggled to find the time or motivation to write blogs, I encourage you to try journaling instead. It's a great way to reflect on your experiences and think about your goals and aspirations. Who knows, it might just become a habit that helps you stay on track and achieve your dreams.
