Why Do I Blog?
Future Blog Plans & Why Do I Blog? - Hashnode Bootcamp III Task
Hello there, I am attending a Technical Writing Bootcamp at @hashnode. Hashnode Bootcamp III is a free virtual Bootcamp to help beginner technical writers to improve their writing skill. This article is inspired by the latest session by Sultan, @Grantfortheweb
TASK: Future plans for my Blog and my Top reasons to Blog.
In this Blog article, I will share my thoughts on the same.
Let's get started.
My Future Blog Plan:
I am a tech-enthusiast. I like to learn and explore new tech stuffs. Learning is a never ending process, 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.
Monetizing blogs is not my primary motive but will plan in near future. With that being said I plan to continue Blogging and sharing my knowledge as I learn and grow. Sharing few key reasons of, Why do I blog?
1. Document the learning
I am a self taught developer and have a habit of documenting my learning. Blogging makes it easier for me to write and express my ideas.
2. Teach and Share my personal experience
For me blogging is form to express my take at something. It in turns provides me an opportunity to grow. I wish to help programmers overcome the fear barrier and provide the the little push that they think they need to start their journey through my personal experience.
3. Get better through feedback and suggestions
The best way to learn anything is practice. Feedbacks play a vital role for a writer as getting a third perspective always helps. If I blog, I get regular feedbacks and suggestions. Positive ones motivate me to write more, whereas, the negative ones, help me grow, help me get better.
4.Expand my network and connect with like-minded people
Blogging can serve as a medium of communication, it opens a channel to connect with like-minded people from all over the world that share the same interests as us. We can learn from each other and even collaborate in projects that would help to boost our career to the next level.
I aim to continue to do my bit to contribute to shape the community a better place for developers as I remember the time I wrote my first blog. I couldn't have done it without the support by the DEV community throughout my journey. I try to do my level best to contribute to the DEV community and support fellow bloggers in shaping the Community a better place for us. For most people, the first step is always the toughest. I try to help people. This serves as a primary reason which pushes me to write, not just for me but to help developers who are beginners and new to the DEV Community.
MY MOTO: Let's learn and grow together and make the DEV Community a better place for developers.

I started my blog this week pretty much for the same reasons.
I would add that another reason for me was also to improve my documenting/technical writing skills.
