Getting Back Into Blogging

How to Build an Online Presence as a Junior Developer

I found this post a month back and it has been sitting in my phone's Chrome tab since them. It finally wore me down, and I started looking into how to get back into blogging. As a junior developer working with edge tech, I feel like I should have information to share and that the act of blogging consistently is another great screen activity.

After spending an entire day trying to figure out how to tear down my site and redesign it with blogging in mind, I decided that I would make dev.to my temporary blogging home rather than taking days to build/refine my own website. After all, procrastination is starting's worst enemy. There's probably a grammatical error in that phrase, but let's roll with it.

I am still looking to refine my web development skills on the side with VR. I have about 2.5 years of C#.NET experience, but I am more interested in getting started with Javascript and having it drive much of my new website. If anyone has any guides or suggestions on how I can do so, please let me know! Thanks for reading~

Great post and great link! I'm kind of in the same boat except I never blogged before. I am currently building 2 blog/vlog sites but its taking longer then I had expected. For now I've decided to focus on content so that I can start releasing some of my stuff here as well as medium.com.

If you don't mind me asking, why two at the same time when you could devote more time to finishing one?

Good luck Lawrence!

Writing's great for so many reasons. I blog a lot about writing itself! #blogception.
