Ali, I also want to publish my content piece here, but i got stuck at a point, that whenever I hit save post button after lay-outing my post, it shows 2 errors always i.e.
(): could not find expected ':' while scanning a simple key at line 5 column 1
Title can't be blank
I have tried a lot and clear all the issue from my end but as it is still shows error there. Please suggest advice.
Oh -- this sounds like an issue with the frontmatter on your post -- that's the part with metadata for dev.to. For example, mine for this post looks like:

description: The most common question I get from blog readers is "What is your advice for new programmers?" So, I thought it was time to write up my thoughts.

If there's a colon in your title you will need to put that title in quotes!
may have even better advice too!
