First, happy Monday to all around the world! I want to clarify that I am not part of dev.to, but an independent freelance developer and just recently started to write on dev.to. The article reflects my personal opinion after 10 days on this awesome platform.
First, I noticed the site particularly often in Google news. I liked some of the headlines and occasionally read some articles. I especially liked the clear and bright layout and the short logo with simple design. I like short brand names, logos and few colors. Perfect for capturing the content it's all about.
I like writing. But I also want to share my knowledge and of course build my status as a freelancer. Here are some of the things I like most about DEV.TO as a writer:
- Clear interface without a lot of bells and whistles
- Fast Markdown editor for posts
- Easy to get started
- Easy login via GitHub or any other platform
- You get attention relatively fast
- You can save several drafts
Maybe I will extend this list later..
- 8 (test) articles written

To promote an article on DEV.TO, I share the link on LinkedIn, Twitter and EchoJs.com. That's enough to start with.
If you have ideas for articles, post them in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
