Best of 2022 - Recap of my blog posts

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.

Some statistics

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

Best articles of 2022

No1: How I Got My First Job As A Developer

My best article of 2022 is How I Got My First Job As A Developer, originally written for the Hashnode Writeathon.

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.

No2: How To Create A Timer With React

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

It was the first tutorial I have ever written. It was hard but with the amazing support of the community, I could create a nice React article. Thank you again to everyone who has commented and made improvement suggestions.

No3: Tools I Am Using On A Daily Basis

Another very well received article was about Tools I Am Using On A Daily Basis.

It got over 13k views and was one of the The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week Mid-November.

Best articles of all time

Best article is still How To Create A Stunning GitHub Profile from 2021, with 40k views on dev.to.

Best article on Hashnode is How to write a promising CV, with over 20k views.
