Participated in Hacktoberfest for the first time.

I had never contibuted to Hacktoberfest or any open source projects before.So when I came to know about Hacktoberfest for the first time i.e this year,I decided to participate in it.

So today I will tell you about my experience as a first time contributor in Hacktoberfest.

I started off by registering up for the event. But the main thing was to find the repositories where you could contribute or solve the issues. I found a section in the official website which was dedicated for first time contributors. There anyone could understand the process of contributing to the hacktoberfest and it's rules. Once I read it ,I started checking out the repositories where I could contribute and since I was good in flutter and few other programming languages, I found few repositories. Initially I completed 4 PRs too which is the minimum criteria for completing hacktoberfest.Those PRs were successfully merged too. I was feeling kinda happy(I dont know why) to contribute to the github repos,so I contributed to more repositories of my interest and did 9 PRs.

After completing the 4 successful PRs,I was very impatient to wait for the 14 day review period.And my PRs passed the review period too. Then finally I recieved the mail that I have completed the hacktoberfest successfully and thus now I will get the cool Hacktoberfest tee too :p
