Great post! It's very insightful because I royally suck at managing a brand. My wife and I do have a business entity called CCS Tech in the New England, USA area, but that brand is mostly computer and phone repair, TCP/IP networking, etc. It really has nothing to do with what I write about. Heck, when we started our business 5 years ago, we built our website on Wix because we needed it done over the weekend (to my undying shame)!!! What I write on Dev.to are subjects that I'm passionate about and subjects that I consider myself an expert on. But, with no degree or GitHub profile, my developer career ultimately ended in the Enterprise world despite my proven experience in the field.
I would love to see more content like this. I would also love advice on how to build and manage a brand, drive traffic to a website, etc. I'll be the first to admit, I am capable of doing amazing things with the stacks I use, but getting somebody to care enough to hire me to do it? I cannot, for the life of me, get that engine running with any consistency. Great post and keep up the blogging!
Thank you so much for the feedback! It's encouraging me more to hybrid my technical knowledge with the marketing/PR knowledge I learned in college! I'll keep it up :)
