My workflow for creating reading lists is kind of weird, but it works for me. Basically, it goes like this: throughout the week, I click-through to plenty of articles, blog posts, videos, etc. that even mildly interest me. Usually, this stuff comes from Twitter, but sometimes it comes from the small list of “blogs” and news sites that I keep up with (Smashing Magazine, Lifehacker, whatever sites I’ve clicked through to from Google News).
I’ll click through, let that piece hang out in its own browser tab, and then go back to whatever I was working on or doing or setting out to do.
Then, usually on Saturday or Sunday, I go back through the tabs that I have open and read over the things I’ve amassed for myself.
Again, it’s not perfect, but it works for me.
Here’s what I’ve collected for myself this week:
- From Zero to 45 Days in a Row: How I Built a Habit of Daily Exercise
- Why Self Care Is So Important
- Input Add-ons - I go back to Solved By Flexbox from time-to-time because it’s a great resource for solving problems that are otherwise a pain to solve with older CSS approaches.
- Frend - A collection of accessible, modern front-end components. I caught this a few weeks ago, but I’m still loving it.
- Practical ARIA Examples
- Clarity Conf - Baking Accessibility In
- Starter Kit - Alex Carpenter’s Gulp-based starter kit. I love looking at other people’s code and approaches to things.
- There Goes the Neighborhood - This is a podcast that I want to start listening to.
- Introducing React Storybook - This is several weeks old, but I keep meaning to read this Medium post.
- Getting Started with CSS Modules
- The Easy Way to Learn Hard Stuff - I also love seeing how other people approach learning.
- Flexbox Patterns - more practical flexbox usage stuff.
- React to the Future - Elijah Manor’s slides from a talk he recently gave.
- When It Comes to Age Bias, Tech Companies Don’t Even Bother to Lie - Been thinking a lot about age and the tech industry.
