You probably don’t need a single-page application
Ignore the clickbait headline. This is a really solid breakdown of the cases where SPAs make sense, and where a more traditional (or hybrid) architecture would be a better choice.

2018 in Review – Ellen Chisa – Medium
I tend not to have the discipline to track my personal data this closely, but I always want to. Anyway - the major takeaway for me here is the "most important task of the day" idea. I do this weekly already, so it'd be a minor (and useful, I think) addition to take up doing it daily.

A Comprehensive Guide to Using Airtable as a Personal CRM
I also built an Airtable for this, though it wasn't as nice. I ended up giving Monica a try instead, but it's not great, either. I might switch back to Airtable and use this as a starting point.

I hate manager READMEs – Camille Fournier
An interesting perspective, with a lot of merit. I've found the manager README concept compelling, but never tried it. Now I'll think a lot more critically before I give it a shot (and may decide not to after all).

Like Mint &c, but syncs financial data to Google Sheets instead of a web app. I'm a huge fan of Sheets: it's a far more powerful product than you'd think, with strong scripting support and a pretty easy API. Using it for my own financial analysis seems perfect, looking forward to giving this a try.

A Curriculum for Python Packaging
Al Sweigart's curated selection of talks, documentation, and notes covering the Python packaging ecosystem. I'm seen most of these myself and I agree with the picks 100%: it's a great set of knowledge to help really nail down a rather-confusing part of the Python ecosystem.

Ultralight two person shelter spreadsheet
Great roundup and data on ultralight two person shelters. I really want the MLD Duomid and inner in DCF, but at nearly $1,000 for the pair I think I really should consider other options.

A game for learning CSS grid layout. I loved it, and I learned a few new tricks too. Also see Flexbox Froggy, a game teaching Flexbox layout by the same author.

delta 1 - A bike ride in Bay Point, CA
Potential rote from Sac to Antioch - missing link on my Tahoe/Santa Cruz route! Bike route, but probably there's not much better walking; there aren't really trails through the delta.

Turn books into PDFs - could be very useful for some of my more referency things, or as part of the cookbook digitization thing I've wanted to do for a while. Not actually $1/book: $1/100 pages, plus additional for OCR and such. Still a pretty good deal.

Another Tavis/P0 password manager finding. Could affect other types of plugins, so if you write one, worth reading. Also worth reading through to see a good example of a researcher and vendor working closely to understand a complex issue and deploy a systemic fix.
