    4:25 is kinda contradictory with "Fake it till you make it"

    I'm in my late 20's and have been in and out in college because of financial issues. I'm taking Computer Science, btw. Currently, I'm not enrolled and I'm taking advantage of learning online…. and planning to write a blog about my progress. 🙂 Thank you for sharing your advice, sir.

    Oddly enough, I share a close background to Jeremy. I left the military and intelligence community a few years ago (spent time in USSOCOM as well!) and decided shortly after to pursue web development. This video answered one of my main concerns about starting a blog and whether I am ready. Maybe I could talk about my transition and even the challenges (and benefits) of doing so in my late 30's. Thanks again John! I don't know how you have time for all these videos lol, but we appreciate it! – Matt

    Tbh, I for one would recommend blogging for everybody. It personally helps me stay away from excess facebook usage. The reason being that both facebook and blogs are mediums for you to write an express yourself. Some will like your expression, some wont, thats life ok. The only difference is that expressing yourself in facebook doesnt really give you that much in return, if you blog instead, not only do you express yourself, you secure a chance to stand out in the internet, you get to showcase your knowledge and one way or another, it can also help you know your niche. And you know how easy career decisions are once you know your niche.

    I don't know if there is something wrong with my phone or Bluetooth but the sound cuts in and out.

    So I've started a blog since the beginning of my bootcamp but it went down to only being updated once a month. I'm trying to blog more, but I realize I'm not sure what to blog about or if I should even continue. I've been unsuccessfully job hunting for a developer job for a few months now and I've found nothing. I'm pretty weak in programming but I want to improve. I also feel like I'm already passed over before even getting interviews, so I'm not even sure if I want to put out there how weak of a learner I am. My classmates had offers left and right and I barely even got interviews. I went from looking for developer jobs to looking for help desk jobs.
