One of the people I follow on Mastodon, Kev Quirk posted this toot:

So we have #100DaysOfCode. What about #100DaysToOffload where you blog about something...anything...every day for 100 days. Not having a blog isn't an excuse – you can sign up for a free one with @write_as. 😃 Anyone interested?

So, for my first day, I'll tell you about something I've been up to for the past days.
