Creating a blog and building a brand as a software developer.
WRITTEN BY GARETH DUNNE @JSDIARIES
Software Developer’s Identity
In order to build a reputation as a software developer consistent blog posts are essential to build an identity. This is the main reason I have started jsdiaries.
Although I have to admit, this is something that I originally couldn’t comprehend. How will building a blog boost my career in software development? Well providing useful information not only benefits readers of your blog but also gives the blogger the opportunity to learn by teaching. The more content researched the more likely it is that you have learned more and built a stronger brand in the process.
This plan I have created for jsdiaries came from following John Somez’s How to Create a Blog to Boost Your Career course.
His email course provides the stepping stones for a developer to create a blog like this. His course takes place over 3 weeks and an email with information on how to create a blog for software development is sent every Monday and Thursday. If you want to sign up just click below.
The emails are very direct and concise on how to create a platform like this to build a brand and identity. The most impressive byproduct of this course is that software developers that are in the exact same position with their blog can network together and support the growth of each other. John has enabled this by featuring all the bloggers that finish his email course on his website Simple Programmer linked below.
Its a simple but effective way of boosting his own reputation while simultaneously helping to grow the careers of other developers.
