The year 2022 is almost over. I wrote a lot of articles and wanted to take a look back at my best articles this year that I'm proud of, that helped others, and that I was surprised were so well received.
I wrote my first article in 2021, 9 in total that year. I think I had about 700 followers at that time. (I'm just trying to get all the information from dev.to analytics).
In 2022, I
- wrote 63 articles (6 more to come)
- have now 3789 followers
- won the Hashnode Writeathon (4 articles in 4 weeks)
- now have 860 followers on Hashnode
- received all community and writing badges on dev.to

It got almost 10k views on Hashnode and over 6k views on dev.to, and got featured on Hashnode and dailydev, which led to a big win at the Hackathon I am proud of.
I enjoyed writing it and that it helped many aspiring junior developers, as they commented on the article.

My second best article is How To Create A Timer With React, which got over 30k views on dev.to.
