Writing a blog also portrait you as an expert in your field. It shows you are interested in what you are writing and doing. For the potential clients, it is a good sign that you are interested in what you are doing and enjoy the process of working as a developer. It also states that you as a writer have a great sense of organizing knowledge which will be quite beneficial and comes handy when you have to share your ideas and thoughts with new people around you.
3. Learning along the way
We gain knowledge and learn things over time in our career as a developer. It is our job to stay up to date with new technologies and development trends and it is a good thing. But the problem emerges when we stop learning new things. For stopping this from happening blogging can be helpful. When you blog regularly you have to find topics to blog this will force you to research more about your topics and hence helps you in gaining knowledge that you otherwise completely ignored in the first place.
4. Getting your voice heard and meeting like minded people
As a human being, other humans attracts us that is a common phenomenon. We love people with same looks, behavior, and ideas. We always want someone who will listen to our crazy ideas with the same enthusiasm and curiosity as we experience when sharing our ideas with others. And here again your blog comes handy, when you publish a blog post you are sharing it with millions of people all around the world to read it and then connect with you if they like what you have to say. Isn’t that fascinating ? It is to me. Along the way you will find great people who will be more than interested in helping you out in things you want to achieve in your life.
