      As always, hard & persistent work pays off! Quoting a linked 2014 article from Atwood:

      It is odd to meet developers that tell me they "grew up" with Coding Horror. But I guess that's what happens when you keep at something for long enough, given a modest amount of talent and sufficient resolve. You become recognized. Maybe even influential. Now, after 10 years, I am finally an overnight success.

      I didn't grow up reading Coding Horror, but I've bumped on the blog many times. He's in the search results for sure!

      I can see how this was (and still is) good marketing for Ghost.

      I think the blog is still very relevant. It's this way to connect with a very large audience, these people who are listening and paying attention to you. That's a privilege. I believe very strongly that you shouldn't squander that.
