The first Keeping Up With Data was published on October 23, 2020. Which means that today marks a year of reading hundreds of data articles, writing 53 weekly reading lists, and 13 opinion pieces. It has been an incredibly valuable journey, in which I’ve pushed myself to develop a strong reading habit and overcame a writing anxiety.

All the reading has been constantly forming my data philosophy. And the Keeping Up With Data has created me a fantastic library of articles I’m frequently coming back to. If the Medium statistics are not lying, there seem to be some people who find it valuable too.

And this strategic lever for growth should be studied from various angles with proper attention!
