Hello everyone! To commemorate Hashnode's launch on ProductHunt, I'd like to dedicate this article to the Hashnode team. In this article, I want to simply summarize all the amazing reasons why anyone should start blogging on this wonderful platform.
Without further ado, let's begin!
1. You get to meet new people
Our Hashnode community is home to developers and writers from around the world, which means you get to meet new people at a global scale.
Hashnode even has an exclusive Discord channel where you can start introducing yourself to the community, make some new friends and share your articles there!
No matter what your background is in tech, the diversity at Hashnode ensures that you will be able to meet and connect with like-minded individuals who share similar passion in many areas of software, technology and development.
2. You get to learn from fellow developers
One of the best things about starting a tech blog is not just writing and sharing your knowledge. It is also about learning from others and growing together.
The Hashnode culture highly emphasize this form of learning from each other. Through live Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions, you get to connect and ask questions to some of the most well-respected experts in the software industry.
Of course, there are also plenty of accomplished developers on Hashnode that are more than happy to answer any questions in the discussion forums.
Discussion forums is another simple way in which you can engage with other developers, ask questions and learn from their perspectives.
3. You are surrounded with supportive and amazing people
Hashnode facilitates a non-toxic, respectful and supportive environment. If you are new to writing, feel to use the draft sharing feature to ask more experienced writers for advice before publishing your article.
In fact, it is encouraged to share your drafts to gain a lot of feedback when you are starting to write on your blog. It will help improve your writing significantly faster.
At Hashnode, our community is supportive and helpful. You can simply reach out to anyone that you want to connect with by checking out their blog or Hashnode profile page.
4. You grow and develop your own blog
Hashnode lets you create a blog on your personal domain for free. Hence, there is no reason NOT to choose Hashnode if you want to start your own blog under your name.
Having a blog on a personal domain helps you build a personal brand and online reputation as a developer/tech writer.
You can start publishing articles on your blog and gain a lot of readers instantly due to Hashnode's large audience base. That way, it is much faster to grow your personal blog on Hashnode than on any other platform.
5. You are a part of a community-driven platform
Hashnode cannot be the Hashnode today without its community. Once you join Hashnode, you are a part of our community.
You can make requests for features, request for articles and also give feedback to the Hashnode team on certain aspects on Hashnode you like to improve on.
The Hashnode team is very open to feedback and feature requests. Together as a community, we can help take this platform to newer heights and become a part of its everlasting impact for dev-bloggers.
Conclusion: More than just a blogging platform
Actions speak louder than words. I am just another writer on this platform but I have seen incredible growth and initiatives taken by the Hashnode team and community that made me so impressed and proud to have joined them.
From the #2Weeks1Article challenge to the Hashnode Technical Writing Bootcamp, I can see that Hashnode is more than just a blogging platform. It is also a community-driven and positive platform that aims to empower developers and writers - regardless of age, gender, race or level of expertise in their field.
If you want to start publishing your own articles on not just any platform, but to an inspiring and amazing group of people, then Hashnode is for you!
Thanks for reading. I wish the Hashnode team all the best and I look forward to the upcoming features Hashnode has in store for us. Cheers!
