An Honest Opinion About My Blog.

I just launched my blog www.anythingprogramming.com .

I have been writing for Dev.to almost a year now and I am really happy with the experience so far.

It has given me the opportunity to learn more about my craft, connect with other writers and share my thoughts with a wider audience than what I had before.

But now that I have been writing for almost a year, it is time for me to launch my own blog where I can have more control over what content goes up on it and who reads it.

The blog has been launched for a few months now and it's just getting started. The articles that I have written so far are not the best, but they will get better as I continue to write more content.

I would like to ask you if you could give me your honest opinion about my blog so that I can improve it and make it better.

Feel free to go has on me or criticize me either in the comment section of the blog website or here on Dev.to

I meant to also suggest continuing to post on DEV as well. You can configure DEV to import posts from your blog via RSS, and to set canonical links to the original version on your blog website so that your site gets the credit for SEO. When you import via RSS on DEV, posts end up as drafts until you actually post them or remove them. This way if you have posts on your personal site that aren't relevant to DEV then you just delete the drafts for those, but post the ones that are relevant.

The advantage to posting here too is that you will have the readers from DEV who may not otherwise see posts on your own site.

To do that go into the DEV settings and then into "extensions". There is a field to enter your rss feed. And a checkbox to control whether to make your original post canonical.

I like the overall look and feel of your blog site. You should probably change your logo though. By ap.com you are obviously just trying to abbreviate the name of your blog AnythingProgramming. However, ap.com implies that you own that domain as well. But ap.com is the domain for a company Axiometrix Solutions, also known as Audio Precision Inc. Maybe redesign your logo around just the letters ap without the .com.
