I always write about something I don't know, so I have to research to understand it and when I have problems I can go back to it, and since it was written by myself it is easier to understand!

Buy a domain, buy hosting this will motivate you to don't stop with your feelings. Continue by searching for a theme. You can start with Wordpress.

What subjects do you want to debate ?

mostly mobile technologies, and maybe some general stuff about JVM (I love coding for the JVM)

Don't forget, that you cand automatically import articles to dev.to using the RSS feed.

Don't forget the purpose of this. At the beginning it will be probably hard and you'll check the statistics and probably will not satisfy your ego. Keep moving forward.

I have a blog: boobo94.xyz. I really love to share some problem that I faced with the community.

You should start as soon as possible.

Start small. Don't try to write complex article at the beginning. Try to write few paragraphs about something that you are interested in or want to share with people.

For example:
paulgraham.com/talk.html

From my experience, I just started by writing without really thinking a lot about who will read it since I do it for my self. You can talk about everything actually. :)

I find blog posts in emails I have written to people that ask me questions.

The usual advice is just to go and write something.
But I also can suggest blogging community on Reddit: reddit.com/r/Blogging/. It's pretty helpful.
