3 Dev.to tips I hoped someone told me

Hello World! πŸ‘‹

I've been using dev.to for quite a while now, and I have a few juicy tips I would like to share! πŸ˜„ I really hope they help you become a better developer and writer!

Tip Number 1 (Be Honest)

If you are a bad developer, well, don't pretend to be a pro. You don't have to write an article named "I am a bad dev." because well, that's silly.

You know why being honest is important? Because you're yourself when you are honest! 😁 And guess what, you are the best at being yourself.

Tip Number 2 (Use Emoji & Hooks)

Emoji's are a great way to keep our audiences hooked, but make sure not to overuse them, the same for hooks. After all, we are writing to help each other. πŸ˜‰

Try not to spam your audiences with emoji's or hooks, just one or two hooks in the introduction is enough. An emoji or two per paragraph are also recommended. πŸ‘

Keep your writing neat and unique, or even special, but try not to be weird. πŸ˜› Try to hook your audience, but don't annoy them, that's the last thing anyone wants!

Tip Number 3 (Be Inclusive)

We are humans, and humans want to be part of a group. Humans want to be included, not excluded. The last thing we want is to be excluded. You want your audience to feel like they "belong". πŸ˜‰

Well, this strategy is especially easy with dev.to, because pretty much anyone using this is a developer, or at least is interested in programming or technology. πŸ˜†

Bye World

In other words, conclusion. Hope all of you have a good day! Now close this tab and get coding!
