Hello, buddies! 100 days ago, I joined a lovely platform called Hashnode and today is my 100th day! Time flies fast and I actually thought my 100th day is the 29th this month but to be thanks to a day counter, I didn't miss this day.
Anyway, no one wished me today so I'm wishing myself. (Ayodele Samuel Adebayo knows how crazy I am...😂)
So today I wanted to share my 100 days of the journey at Hashnode. No worries, this is not a long one..
At the start of March, I got an idea about a blog where I can share my knowledge as well as engaging with a community. I tried some other platform like medium but they didn't feel like a community. When there is no choice, I tried to make m own blog with WordPress. But when hosting and maintaining everything by myself, I can't 100% focus on writing. So I gave up trying WordPress.
But I was not able to give up the idea and didn't stop searching. And finally, I found this article by Catalin Pit which has included an unfamiliar platform called, Hashnode. When it says Hashnode's features like You are part of a large community, You can customize and personalize your blog, I was just like this,
Then I made my blog in 2 mins and published my first article in 5 mins(I wrote that article before making a blog so I just copied and pasted it😂).
Still, I can't figure out how I wrote 53 articles in 100 days! It means I have blogged more than half of the days at Hashnode. I'm mad.
However, I'd like to share a few articles that I proud of myself.
This is my very first article and my proudest article(even though it didn't get a lot of feedback😂) because making a simple game for beginners myself and covering all the things needed for a game is a good thing for me.
In this article, I mentioned some Habits that make a Programmer Successful. And yes, I got positive feedback for this.
Actually, this is not an article to be so much proud but I feel very happy when seeing people using its reaction buttons❤️❤️
In this article, I shared some tips to make coding easy, while covering the topics that make Coding hard.
It's a simple topic and the reason for being proud of that is, I met some people who learned what's the difference between Developer and Programmer. And I shouldn't say I get only good feedback😂. I found some people who don't accept that difference. It's their choice so I don't have to care about them!
Well, these are only the proudest articles. Actually, I'm proud of all the articles in my blog💪😊.
One Hundred Days...
Yeah, I love this community. Over Hashnode, I found some
good-hearts like victoria Lo, Sai Ansul, George Isiguzo Chinonye etc. My special thanks to George Isiguzo Chinonye for being a great motive at the very beginning and of course I should thanks Victoria Lo for begin such a valuable and lovely friend❤️❤️.
Also, I got great knowledge about some writer's choices and the best thing is, I found some amazing devs who have the same choices on articles! As an example
In these 100 days, I learned a lot of non-technical things and the best thing I learned is,
Don't give up too early
Okay, I if you read my very first articles, they didn't get good feedback or readers and I thought "I don't have the skill to blog.." more than a thousand times. Actually, if there was no George Isiguzo Chinonye to motivate me from the beginning, I have already given up.
So this is my journey! I have a lot to learn and still I'm a beginner! However, I know this is not a useful article for anyone, this is only a personal reflection of myself. Thanks a soo much to everyone who helped me in this journey and I hope that I can write and help more people in the future!
