The 3 Rules of Dev Blogging


This post covers a short lightning talk I gave at OKC.js this past Tuesday, March 15, 2016 over the 3 Rules of Dev Blogging. The format’s a little bit different (okay – very different) from my normal blog posts – but that’s because I wrote this post to be the actual slides for my talk. Happy reading if you can follow along with my short notes!

 

Rule 0: Pick a Platform

  • WordPress
  • Ghost.js
  • Medium
  • Many others

 

Rule 1: Write about 2 things

  1. Things you know really well
    1. Tutorials, Explanations of Concepts, etc.
  2. Things you don’t know at all

 

Rule 2: Schedule Your Posts

Write your blog posts in advance, and schedule them.

Figure out what release schedule works for you. Every month? Every other month?

Start with a longer release schedule

 

Rule 3: Market Yourself

Blogging is more fun when you know people are reading what you write
