Thanks for the thoughts!
I like the idea of blogging. Writing has been on my list of to do's. Fear at times that I'm not enough of an expert, so I get action paralysis. Just about targeting the right audience I suppose.
Regarding UI, I have seen that, but that isn't what I am looking for. I am thinking journey maps, complex flows, strategy, user stories, storytelling for UX, product themes, literature reviews, market research, storyboards, content strategy, scenarios, etc.
I find it difficult to flex practice these methods on products I'm not directly involved as there is so much information I am missing, and to me being great at UX means thinking in terms of systems.
I also find that many meetups etc are too topical or geared toward absolute beginners. cc @HAWK
