Everyone on DEV is lovely, even if you don't think you are. Thank you all so much for your support, comments, reactions, and reads! I have never in my entire development career, met such a wonderful and supportive group of creatives, craftspeople, and innovators! I have tried many many times to get into blogging before and always quite because I felt that nobody cared about the content (yes, I am that insecure 😝). But with DEV, I was continually encouraged and motivated to, not only improve my writing, but my craft as a developer. Thank you all so much to this incredible community, the creators of the platform, maintainers and contributors to its OSS code, moderators who keep trolling to the lowest levels I've ever seen on a similar platform, and everyone else who makes a difference, whether you get paid to or do it for free! I encourage everyone who reads this to please leave a comment talking about their blogging journey, on DEV or off, and whether you are brand new or a seasoned veteran so that we can share our journeys together!
