Discussion on: I'm working on a guide for developers who want to blog, but don't know where to start. What questions should I answer?

Of i have a big topic to blog. Should I make it into a series of blogposts under same title or different title.

Also how important is it add code examples?

Great question! Either way works, but there are a few reasons I'd lean towards writing many smaller articles instead of one large one.

  • The most important is that it's easier to ship. Large articles can become daunting and end up sitting in your drafts folder forever.
  • When you write a series, you can get feedback and make adjustments along the way.
  • If you write a series, you can always bundle it up into a larger guide later. It's much harder to go the other way.
