Discussion on: How do you decide subject for your next DEV article?

Meme: "You don't have to worry about what to write next, if you have a backlog of 100 articles you'll never write".

More seriously:

  • I just make content on whatever idea dawns on me. I get a lot of ideas, so I have a long backlog of stuff.
  • Also, every now and then, I go through my personal notes on programming topics. I get inspiration on articles from those. Things like "oh, maybe other people would benefit from knowing this", or maybe other people would benefit from an organised article on this topic.

Hope that helps. Very curious to hear yours and other people's idea generation process as well!

I liked your approach you revisit notes and find there what will benefit others.
