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
- Many others
Rule 1: Write about 2 things
- Things you know really well
- Tutorials, Explanations of Concepts, etc.
- 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
- Google+ Communities
- Hacker News
