If who we are is a story we tell ourselves, technically we can retcon our own history.
For my 30th birthday, I considered pruning my old blog posts that don't fit where I am today. I could cut them out and make it look as though I was born this way.
But as I skimmed through my posts about SEO and WordPress, I saw that if I erased this part of me, no one else would be able to see how I got here and learn from the path I took.
So I decided to convert my blog archive into an illustrated history of my journey through web development. Most of the posts are me puffing myself up to look good for possible employers. I added descriptions for each year to describe what was really going on. You can read backwards in time, or start at year one, way back in 2008. Please enjoy.
