  • What music boosts your productivity?
  • How many times do you go to the bathroom when you code? ( I always forgot to pee when I am in the flow
  • Have you ever felt like an Imposter, like you don’t deserve your success?

3) write very simple technical posts

EXTRA TIP: forget all the above, just write for yourself

Write about what you are learning

Write about your successes and your failures

Write about your coding life:

Don’t worry about numbers, stats, likes, page views.
