It has now been 9 years since I launched Geeky Medics as a VERY buggy self-hosted Wordpress blog. I wanted somewhere to share my medical school notes with other students easily, regardless of their location.
In some ways, it's hard to believe I'm still working on the same project I started as a 22-year-old student. I'm not quite sure where Geeky Medics ends and I begin anymore. I do know that I still enjoy working on it as much as I did in those early days (despite the exponential increase in admin) and in a lot of ways, I feel like I'm only just getting started.
If I had one piece of advice to people starting out, it would simply be to work on something you'd feel happy doing, even if no-one else showed up.
P.S. Here's my first sketch of the Geeky Medics website that my mum discovered recently (I couldn't bring myself to refer to it as a wireframe). 🤓
