" Jargon-Filled Headlines "
Jargons are special words or expressions used by a profession or group that are difficult for others to understand.
Examples of most common Drupal Jargons:
(API) An application programming interface
(BLOB) Binary Large Object
(CCK) Content Construction Kit
(CMS) Content Management System
To avoid these headlines, think about crafting headlines your mom (or really anyone unfamiliar with your industry) would understand and want to click on. With this frame of mind, you'll quit using jargons and you'll end up actually enriching your readers and being closer to them.
Why every developer should write a blog?
Have you ever thought that writing a blog will have a positive reflection on you in the first place as a developer because it assures you the following:
Get a deeper understanding by teaching others:
To write and educate others, you need to understand what you are doing and be able to teach it, they say you never fully understand a topic until you are able to explain it.
Improve your skills and knowledge:
To have a blog means to present to the globe your abilities and expertise. If you believe "I’m a beginner and I can’t do it” then just stop because “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” – Henry Ford.
Expand your blog to your own business:
You can expand in all directions once you have your own blog published. You can also create, write and sell your own products, or offer your own services.
In short, a company’s success depends on the content it offers!
Blogging is an incredible way to boost your character. Anything you do can be improved by a blog. It opens doors you'd never expected. So be consistent with the topic, show up consistently, write posts in advance, have a list of post ideas and read books, cases, and stories.
