These past weeks I've been thinking of putting into blog posts what I speak about in my public talks. For example, I tend to do talks about Open Source (20-40 min), I think that I can easily write blog posts talking about different sections/sub-topics of Open Source, from the talks I prepare.
Whenever I finally write the posts, it ends up being useful to at least one person 🤗 So even the smallest or simplest topic (from your perspective), can serve a great purpose.
I’d like to start doing talks to further elaborate on some of the posts I’ve written. Ive never thought about going the opposite direction with it!
It is interesting how people can end up doing the same things in opposite directions :P I started taking on opportunities to do talks because I wanted to spread the word on what I learned about Open Source and then I realized that talks are seen by a specific audience that can physically or virtually attend your talk... You have a much wider audience out there that can find your blog posts. So it seems a great and practical thing to do, to turn talks into blog posts :)
It’s definitely something I want to get into. I just don’t know how and there aren’t really meetups in my area.
