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 is my intention with this blog – to provide consistent content on the latest technologies focused on but not limited to JavaScript frontend libraries. I hope to bring the reader’s attention to some useful tools and news along the way and to also publish development updates from my own personal projects.

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.
