Thanks, I’m glad it was helpful! Honestly, I’m doing this to improve my writing, and to try to be less afraid of learning and even failing in public.

For me, my audience is either me X days/weeks/months/years ago, or someone that I’ve interacted with recently that I didn’t have the words to help them as effectively as I would have liked.

I don’t think I’m any authority on what will be popular, but one thing I’ve noticed is that the more accessible the content is to a beginner audience the better it does. It’s not gonna stop me from writing about developer ergonomics when writing an ESLint plugin, but I need to be ok with that article not getting much of an audience.
