Weekend Survey: You Can Meet Your Future Self

What if you could meet your future self? What would you do together? What would you talk about? What questions would you ask? What would you not want to know?

Writer and software engineer Ronald Huereca has been a developer at notable agencies like iThemes and 10up. His varied background has him working with WordPress since 2006, eventually creating his own plugin which, of course, lead to more. He spends quite a bit of his time volunteering with the WordPress project as a core and polyglot contributor. With all of his passions, writing has been the way Ronald expresses himself best. He has written both technical books as well as fiction. Some of his works include Project Mayhem, Mindefusement, and WordPress and Ajax. “You can only delay the inevitable” is his favorite quote. Ronald enjoys reading Stephen King and John Grisham. When he’s not writing, Ronald dreams of building websites filled with cats yawning, disclaimers his strong opinions, sings karaoke, and advocates for empathy surrounding mental health.

  1. me: Great to see you!
    Future: You too!

    me: Wow, aren't we looking much trimmer.
    Future: Yes, how do you feel about this?

    me: My thoughts on looking trimmer? Oh, I'm ever so thankful
    to God for answering this prayer.
    Future: Yes, you've been blessed.

    me: Thanks for showing me what I 'will' be soon
    thanks to God.
    future: Be blessed!

    … Walks away feeling blessed.

  2. If I could meet my future self, I would probably see if there were any areas I could improve upon physically. And I'd be able to talk to myself about blogging and web design… something hardly anybody else wants to talk to me about 🙂

  3. I love to talk blogging and web design, especially on ways to improve and a new template for my blog. I like the other parts, but not the header. And as a new blogger, you see all these little gadgets on everyone elses blogs and wonder if you need one too for your own blog. How do you know when you do or when you don't? LOL

  4. Grandma,

    I wrote about this quite a while ago (in October of 06) on Devlounge. I talk about adding features to websites. First find out what you would like to add and picture yourself using it yourself. A lot of the features I have added to my site have been requested by readers. Cetroyer had trouble keeping up with comments, so I added in the "Recent Activity" section (and subscribe to comments function). Others had trouble finding the recent posts (or related posts), so I added in those as well (in the footer).

    Best of luck with your blog. It would recommend asking what the readers want. One thing I dislike about blogspot is how difficult it is to comment. Luckily I have an account there already, but for other people, it's a probably a little out of the way.

    Take care,
