DEV is amazing! I have had a similar experience. It is so motivating. I write for myself. It helps me learn, gives me something to share when colleagues ask questions, and something to refer back to later. But when no one reads or comments it's a bit demotivating, and you question if it's worth it.
I also have found that I used to browse Twitter for news and articles on tech... I find myself on Twitter much less these days.
Thanks for your comment. Yeah it is. But I think as you write more and make your identity here, then people start noticing you.
