Inspirational tweets for Blogging
These are some motivational tweets I saved to motivate me to blog and ease up my insecurities about blogging. Hope this helps other newbies at blogging!
What Una Kravets say here really resonates with me because when I took notes at school, I really would come to appreciate it during the phase of exams and tests.
A great way to learn a concept is to write a blog post about it ✍️ Remember taking notes in school?
I really needed to see this tweet! At first, I would get really concerned if an idea I had for a post was already out there on the internet. That would really make me give up writing the blog post. Despite my feeling, when I look at this thread I feel much better, because what Craig Russell says makes sense to me.
Things I consider before writing a blog post ✔️ Is this something I find interesting ✔️ Is this something I found difficult to learn ✔️ Do I want others to know about it Things I don't consider before writing a blog post ❌ Has someone else already written about it

I don't think anyone should hesitate to put something out there just because there is already a take out there already. People can write about the same topic. They will each do it differently. They will each bring something new to the table.
If you have something you want to blog about, do it. Don't hesitate because someone got there first.
This is an awesome thread about the insecurity of having to know everything, and the reach for the perfect blog post, that can cause you to never publish a drafted post. Shubheksha gets really candid about this and really helps me to overcome the fear of publishing posts.
Gentle reminder: you don't have to know everything about a topic or write a perfect blogpost with no flaws for it to see the light of the day.

I've obsessed over this & wasted enough time to realise that it's harming me in more than one way. What I gain from writing that post is far more valuable than my irrational fear of missing or presenting something incorrectly.
I think I learnt a lot of this by seeing how @b0rk blogs. She writes about what she's currently learning, mentions when she's not sure of something, is happy to be corrected & open to having gaps filled in by other ppl.
Just having that kinda attitude is such a huge confidence boost. It's telling yourself - I learnt this cool thing today, I'm going to write about it. It's okay if I'm wrong or I missed something. Someone (hopefully) will correct me which will add to what I know!
This one reminds me that you can learn a lot from blogging, the research for the blog post topic, and the willingness to have a good blog post makes you learn more about the topic. As Christina Lee says, this also applies for public speaking.
A pretty good description of how public speaking and writing can make you a better developer. I love the term "knowledge transforming" to describe this sort of process. Excerpt from Peak, by Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool
