I’ve been blogging for about 11 years, though not often. For the last 5 years, I have been publishing a newsletter titled “Weekend Readings for Developers”(In Turkish), which has reached 83 issues (I will mention it frequently to give some examples in the article). I also love to read and write. So I wanted to share my experiences with you.
Since I will talk about my personal experiences, naturally what I will write is subjective. It can easily be falsified and may contain deficiencies. I would be happy if you share the points you see wrong, and your own experiences that you want to add as a comment.
Our topics are as follows. In this first post, I will talk about the first 2 titles:
* Motivation and Benefits of Writing Tech Blog
* Subject, Style, Spelling…
* Experience and Content Production
Motivation and Benefits of Writing Tech Blog
Writing, first of all, is an instructive and useful process in itself. You can write, if necessary, in a way that only you can read, to pour your heart out and relax. The more you write, the better you begin to express yourself. In my humble opinion, writing can positively affect even your coding skills.
If we go back to writing technical content, first of all, you need to learn the topic you want to write or talk about. You can’t explain properly without understanding it. If you have question marks in your mind about the subject you are writing while writing, this will be reflected in the reader’s experience and you will stumble together. That’s why you need to thoroughly learn what you’re going to write about, and you’ll learn more during the writing process.
In addition, you may receive questions about the content you have written. Sometimes you may not know the answer. To answer these questions, you learn new things.
