In this article, We are going to discuss the five reasons you can start writing technical blog posts early in your career as a developer.

So let's see those 5 reasons!

1 Use Writing as Your Teacher

Whenever you are learning something new. The best way to memorize it is by writing it. You will be able to process the information much better.

Start writing the summaries of the topic. If you dive into a topic you process information, but when you want to write it down, you're thinking a lot deeper about it than just "learning" :)

2 Train you brain & Try to Explain

When you write about a topic you're not comfortable with, you use all the information and write it in your own word.

you don't have to start with a difficult topic -- start with something simple and small.

Writing repeatedly on technical topics will eventually make it easier for you to write.

3 Show Your Knowledge and Expertise

Blog posts show others the knowledge you have. This can be a benefit when changing jobs and growing your career.

When you put everything online, you create an online presence for yourself. It doesn't have to be perfect. But it will show others that you dive into things that matter to you.

4 Write it First for Yourself, Then for Others

Before you start writing for others, write it for yourself! So write those posts for yourself first!

When you've gained more experience in writing technical blog posts, you can shift your focus toward others. Yes, it's important that others can understand it, but don't expect it to be perfect the first time.

5 You can Start for Free

I 100% Agree with this article, well written! Learning by doing and learning by teaching others is a fundamental way of developing your own skills, learning from your errors, and seeing things from outside your own perspective.

It's a skill to explain your own knowledge, a difficult task, one can know a lot, but not be able to clearly and succinctly illustrate it to others. Technical blogging is one way to develop this skill.

@thebarefootdev Thanks for this deep analysis of this article. I am agreed with all the points you have mentioned.

And yes, Error and Bugs are like a Slingshot. It will slow you down first, but after a moment they will accelerate you forward.

Very insightful post! In this article, I really like the portions where it is described that how one can retain their learnings while writing about a specific topic and then sharing their knowledge and expertise to the outside world. Also you first write for yourself and then for others. I could very well relate to these points!
