Why did I start blogging and why you should too?
Introducing myself to the hashnode community
First of all thanks to hashnode for creating this great platform and an awesome community of developers. Before I start this exciting journey let me introduce myself.
👋 Hi! I am Rutik Wankhade. I am a frontend developer, an avid learner who is passionate about web technologies and building things with code. I love creating open-source projects and contributing to the community. Besides programming I love reading books and biographies, blogging, watching ted talks, playing sports, traveling, and learning new things every single day.
Why did I start blogging?
Well, the purpose of this blog is pretty simple. I always believed in the mantra of learn-apply-share. So this blog is all about my learning and experiences. Right now I am in my learning phase and I think this process of documenting my journey from the beginning is really gonna help me learn and grow.
But wait, I am not an expert! So what? I think waiting till you “become an expert” is a waste of time. The best advice I had was You Will Never Be Ready. Do It Anyway! And we all can contribute with what we know today. It doesn't have to be a big thing. We can start small. I guess this way I can see things from a fresh perspective.
Here are the top 3 reasons why I started this blog.
1. ✍ Documenting my journey
To be honest I am writing this for myself. These are my notes. If I feel like writing about a topic, I will go for it! I want to document everything I learn.
2. 👨🏫 Learn by explaining
The ultimate test of your knowledge is your capacity to convey it to another. -Richard Feynman
It is obvious that one has to do a lot of research in the process of writing a blog, and by doing so I am gonna learn a hell lot of things by studying different topics in depth.
3. 🚀 Giving back to the community
We have some awesome people in the dev industry who are always ready to help and contribute. Their existence is a gift to the community. So this is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be part of.
🤩 So I am very excited. And looking forward to learning and write some interesting posts here.
⚡ Happy learning!
