When I first started writing short articles I had no real plan. At the time I was inspired by reading the things that others were publishing, it was early 1999 and personal websites were slowly on the rise. Reading those words, with the slow realisation that I could do it too, seemed like a new…

Todoist: One Year On

Reading time: 2 mins
