Hello! I am coder by profession, who loves to read & write to keep myself inspired. I have been a blogger for more than 15 years, but lost touch with writing when Twitter was at it’s peak. May be I lost love for my words.

Anyway recently IndieWeb got my love for the technology and also writing back. So been working on a lot many Indie projects & writing my heart out at my blog since then. My hope is this place doesn't kill my drive for reading and writing; rather inspires it.

Writing publicly, with the voice of your readers chirping at the back of your mind, is ineffective. You write for interaction – that’s futile. Most social media posts belong to this category that. You are reined back by the voice — you write for someone else. The response you expect fro... amitgawande.com/2022/05/24/wri

I recently finished watching The Lincoln Lawyer on Netflix. It’s a good, bingeworthy series. Nothing’s great about it, but if all one wants is to binge a show over the weekend, this is one option. The things keep moving. No performance is painful, no side-story unbearable.

[D]esigning a language to be minimalistic, to have fewer concepts, and to choose primitives that combine well together, is a good way to make the language easier to learn. If the programming language has fewer concepts, there’s less to learn, and your level of proficiency will increase... amitgawande.com/2022/05/24/des

I recently got to know (h/t Gabriel) that “On This Day” feature doesn’t work with the Paper theme. I fixed the issue – the micro memories should load properly now. I have also fixed a few minor styling issues. The upgrade should be available in the plugins directory now. omg.lol/gabz

I want you to know that most of your life will happen in the gray spaces between bliss and heartbreak, between having everything lock into place and having it all fall apart. That’s where the grace is.

I have been traveling for the past week – rejuvenating myself amidst the nature. Relaxing on the beach. Had some wonderful rides, surrounded by dense jungles. Most of all, untouched by all the hustle bustle of the modern life. Wonder. Amazement. Serenity.

Flowers and thorns must have a special relationship - often the former attempts to veil the spikes. mbmay amitgawande.com/categories/30d

I have come across many guess-the-word games recently, mostly after Wordle. Semantle is another one, but is different in many ways. It’s not limited in number of attempts. The help page says, “You will need more than six guesses. You will probably need dozens of guesses”. Sounds about r... amitgawande.com/2022/05/02/i-h

I have seen this bit of genius so many times, in many languages. I have no idea who did it first, but it still has me loling. When 7 times 13 is 28 😆 youtu.be/MS2aEfbEi7s

I said I will participate in the May Photoblogging challenge and missed to post on the first day itself. I just couldn’t find the right switch 🙃 micro.welltempered.net/2022/04

I got lazy, wasn’t reading much books. Just listening to audiobooks. Agatha Christie to the rescue again – she has pulled me out of the lull so many times before. She is doing it again.
