Hey buddy👋, I am going to brag a little today and show you how I made 13,000 + blog views with 5 badges, trended number 2 for a week plus the tools that I use.
I joined in March but the real writing journey began in late August when I decided to start blogging and vlogging at the same time. These would run concurrently whether I liked it or not.
At first, I was like this guy in making the decision to write:
The 3-Months Roller Coster Journey:
Before I begin, I want to take this moment to appreciate @hashnode for the amazing community and the fact that I had to custom map my own domain for my blog.
I won't dive into why you should consider Hashnode, there are many reasons mentioned in this blog by @Catalinpit but what stands out for me is the domain mapping and the already available community of readers.
The Stats 〽:
As you can see in the picture below, I have garnered over 13,000 views with over 20 followers and over 30 blogs with the highest blog having 5,800 + views which happened to be my third post actually😮!
The Tools I Use 🛠:
Let me share with you the tools I use in order to achieve and write my blogs. These are very basic tools anyone can learn online and get going in just a second. 🚀
Social Media Sharing:
One I can't fail to do is social media posting and I have got some following and good readers through:
🔹 Hacker News
🔹 Twitter -Follow me here 🙂
🔹 Linked In
🔹 Whatsapp Statuses
I also vlog about some articles: Follow me on YouTube 😋
So, I usually make sure that I share my post to all those channels every time I do one because it helps drive traffic to my blog and get many referrals too. Do This Too, Don't Just Post Your Blog!
Other tools are usually reading materials where I reference my sharing and what I have learnt over time and these could be official docs, tutorials and articles from different sources.
Just like Johnnie Walker keeps walking, just keep writing friend. Sometimes you seem not to have content but surely I tell you, content is always there for example I have a blog series of Kotlin for Python Devs which forces me to keep writing about it over time.
I love this tweet by @TheAnkurTyagi, It makes a lot of sense and summarises almost everything that I wanted to write in this blog and therefore we are done here!
