Hello World!

I am attending a Technical Writing Bootcamp at @hashnode. Hashnode Bootcamp II is a free virtual Bootcamp to help beginner technical writers to improve their writing skill.

This article is inspired by the latest session by Michaela Greiler, @mgreiler, she suggested writing about what does successful blogging mean.

In this Blog article, I will share my thoughts on the same.

Success has different meaning to different people. For me, the reason lies in the question Why I started writing a Blog?

Why I started writing a Blog?

I like to read and I read a lot but writing never crossed my mind. I have a habit of documenting my learning.

I like to document my work. One day I was surfing the Internet and landed upon a very well-drafted blog and it strike me that every time I get stuck, I google.

Google then redirects to a webpage or a blog post, if it helps me then maybe I can write one. But I got caught up in what-ifs of the situation.

What if:

  • No-one reads my blog
  • No one like what I write, etc

It's hard to press the publish button for the very first time.

GOAL: Most people fear to take the first step and do not have the courage to cross the barrier, and trust me starting off is the toughest part and I can relate to it. So, with that in mind, I wanted to help people, like me who are to start their journey as a developer and make the Community a better place for developers.

What does successful blog means to me?

Blogging is a process, blogging helped me realise that negative feedback are as important as the positive ones. People seek only for positive ones and ignore the negatives. ! Negative ones help you grow, I try to get analyse feedback and improve myself.

I feel I am successful at my blog If:

  • people benefit from what I write.
  • it solves their problem.
  • it helps me get better at communicating and to help me to be able to present my ideas.
  • it helps them grow or motivate them or give them the little push to cross the barrier.

Final Thoughts

You need not be perfect to start a blog.

I am learning Python, Blogging is a wonderful medium to share my learning with other people, It in turn helps me learn faster and better.

I wish to continue writing and you should too. It will help you in ways, you cannot imagine.

Great article, for some reason is quite hard to convince other devs friends to start writing, I already tried and failed, hopefully sending your article will incentive them.

You are right Ayushi Rawat. Writing and documenting what you learn or how you solve problem is always good without thinking about views and like. If you are able help at least one person from your blog or story then it will big help to communities. Keep writing and Keep sharing.
