I love this message.
There is definitely no right or wrong way to be a blogger. As you know I have my thoughts on blogging when you have specific goals in mind, but I think the beautiful part of platforms like this is it allows for people to share who don't have the time to develop their own blog. This platform helps those who have other goals for blogging like exploring code, sharing their thoughts, or even just a sense of community.
Thanks for the post, always love your stuff.
I totally agree about the different roles this site fills. Lately I'm realizing I come back here for the community just as much, if not more, than the content too.
Who knows, maybe we'll get a dev.to version of a Notes section someday too! One can dream.
I've definitely been pondering how I can incorporate something like "notes" even as an active blogger. I get really stressed out about whether people want me to talk about my other interests or not. Sometimes I feel stressed out that you can only do that if you've been posting for a long time.
Ugh it is stressful, but when it comes down to it - it's just sharing stuff with a community! :) I come back to that when I get stressed out, haha
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
