Dev.to has a lot of content that you can enjoy. Make sure to have tags of topics that interest you. For me, thats devops and AWS.

You can also interact with people through the comments section of each blog post. It can be intimidating to comment at first, but people here are really friendly. Sometimes the founder of DEV.to comments on your posts, or replies on your comments. He is very friendly and he is a reflection of the kind of people here. He also posts interesting discussion threads and it's nice to comment on those.

When you're feeling more at home, you can write blog posts. People really show their appreciation for your work here. As a blogger myself, I think more than reach, its the engagement that makes me love DEV.to.

There is also the dev shop where you can buy merch. I particularly love the laptop stickers!

 

Is it right to promote personal blog post here? Instead of writing one here?

 

I think most people would suggest not doing that. You can start a post with something like "Originally posted on name of your blog " but I would still take the time to actually write the post out here.

 

If you are learning anything new, write about it. Share what you know and what you are learning.
It will benefit the whole community and yourself.

Keep an eye out for posts with tags like #challenge if you are looking for more ways to participate and learn something new by doing.

Dev also has occasional partnerships with companies like Twilio. There is a Twilio hack-a-thon happening this month on the platform where you can win prizes.

It's also nice/fun to read others posts and leave encouraging feedback.
