This past week I started a new React project at work and was dealing with a weird issue with one of my components. It turns out the issue was caused by Strict Mode
I know I’m a little late to the game, but I recently learned how to use the new HTML
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate. A little light this year for the holidays.
A little light this week, but a bunch of podcasts this time.
I’ve toyed with the idea over the last year about possibly moving away
from using Next.js for my website. A recent post on Mastodon
from Zach Leatherman gave me a little bit more of a push.
The other day in my quest to go through my podcast queue I was listening to an episode of PodRocket, The state of JS frameworks with Chris Ferdinandi
. It was a good discussion on some of the downsides of frameworks like React, Vue, and the like. I would highly recommend listening to it.
Over the course of the last few weeks I’ve been revising how several of my pages get their data. Instead of having to manually edit a JSON file that’s in my code base, I’ve been pulling from Notion’s API. The benefit of this is that it’ll be easier to update the pages. I figure I’ll show how I did it in hopes of helping others.
Over the last week and a half, I've been starting to play around with Astro
again. I had built a good bit of my site in it a while back, but then decided just to re-jigger my Next.js site. Reading and listening to some podcasts has brought me back to starting over.

Some criticism and defense of React this week.
A scary moment in the NFL Monday night. Also lots of podcasts this week.
After stuffing Pocket with a bunch of articles, I've finally gotten around to going through them.
