Yeah, I use HN regularly. I find the wide range of topics interesting to read. However, I hate most of the political content that hits the front-page as well as the endless discussion about the tech giants - so I hit the hide option for such posts. lobste.rs/ is a better community for programming related topics, no political content allowed :)

There's a great value in submitting your content on HN. If it hits front page, the traffic you get is huge. I've had some of my "Show HN" projects hit front page and it's been a big help for me personally. I've submitted blog posts too, but haven't had success yet. I'll keep trying though ;)

Submit your best works, read about similar posts that reach front page and pray that you're lucky. And keep trying, 1 hit out of 10 attempts is better than 0 attempts.
