Goal progress: March 2019

It feels like time goes by faster with each passing month. It feels like I just wrote my last progress update. Yet we’re a quarter of the way through 2019 and quickly approaching the half-way mark of April.

It feels like a throwback to the old web, when we blogged for the sake of sharing and discovery.
