1345 days ago I posted about a C JSON library I wrote [0]. Since then I've added lots of features (serialization), fixed even more bugs (often found by someone else) and learned to say no to pull requests. It became surprisingly popular and I'm still maintaining it, adding features and fixing bugs from time to time. It feels great to know that people are using a tool you wrote and I've learned a lot about writing robust code and designing APIs thanks to it. It also helped me get my current job, so I've also benefited financially from it.
