How to get popularity in software development World?

Hello friends, I am doing software development for the last 2.5 years, but now I want to be popular as a software developer. I have started writing blogs and started contributions for Open Source Projects, but what else I can do to achieve my goals? I am expecting some response from all of you guys.
Thanks.

In my opinion, popularity comes as a by-product of one's hard work and becoming better at one's craft. I suggest push popularity to the very end of the list of your goals. It might sound harsh to you but If you chase popularity then you are going after the wrong goal. Drop all of your expectations from people and focus on your contributions and keep writing. Focus on improving your skills and make them work for you in earning a better livelihood than fame.

I wish you all the best for your future.

@mohammad I think that is a good start. You are definitely on the right tack. Keep contributing, learn a lot, help junior devs, learn from senior devs. You will eventually get there :)
