pudding music challenge: comparing music knowledge 📻
First things first, I need to give away all the credit for this idea. Thanks to Namita (@nnstats on Twitter) since this blog post was fully inspired by this tweet.
had to graph my results from @puddingviz's delightful generational music challenge (https://t.co/6MBp6cdTla) and it turns out I started knowing what music was in ~2005 pic.twitter.com/AwxhPblwZd — Namita (@nnstats) May 2, 2020 It was such a fun idea, I decided to do it too!
pjocolors: baby's first package 📦
About a 2 weeks ago, I tweeted out that I had released my first package pjocolors, which contains 5 colour palettes based on the (original) book covers of Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. Today I released the first update, complete with updated palettes and new functions for use with ggplot2📊!

#tidytuesday: tour de france winners 🚴
For this week’s #TidyTuesday, I decided that I wanted to do an in-depth exploration of the this week’s dataset of Tour de France winners, and write a blog post about how I generally go about my data exploration for Tidy Tuesday.

a quick hello
After more dedicated hours than I would like to admit, my website is finally up and running! A huge thank you to the blogdown package which made this process as painless as possible. I have been lining up ideas for blogposts for a year, I’m glad I finally found the time to create the site to host them all. I’ve always had a love of writing, so transitioning those skills to my personal website should be lots of fun.
