Stepping down as a maintainer

Folks, I've been winding down my development tasks. Somehow I don't feel like being a developer anymore. There are still projects that I love and plan to devote time too but I'm tired of spreading myself too thin and then not having time to pursue my passions.

It is not that #ssb-js work takes much time, it doesn't. It is the mental real-state that is occupied by being a part of too many projects. I'm bad at multitasking and tend to freeze when dealing with too many projects and ideas at the same time.

I want to wind down all my SSB development and use this platform for a while just as a user. I really like it here. I'm also stopping my development of other smol side-projects. I don't have the time or will to pursue them at the moment.

All that is because I want to devote more time to writing, and to be an effective writer I need to empty my head of other stuff. I can't write if I'm constantly trying to be on top of IT stuff and keep up to date with what is happening in the web dev world, etc. Some people can do these tricks, I can't.

I already need to do a lot of development work with my job and the grant for #littlewebbypress. I need to cut the personal dev stuff down.

That is why I think it is best if I step down. Much better to send a clear message about it than just being silent and unresponsive. I haven't been on top of this game even though I am really excited about it and the potential outcomes, it is just that right now I'd rather play the role of a cheerleader sending positive vibes instead a player in the field.

Thanks for being so understanding, folks. It was a hard decision because I kinda want to do everything but it is better to be truthful, admit I can't, and focus on what I can.

Was going to write something, but I can see the others already wrote what I would have said.

Still hope to see your lovely ☕ pictures in my feed still.
