I gave a talk on object-oriented programming with WordPress at WordCamp US 2019. This is the companion article that I wrote for it. If you’re just looking for the slides, click here.
A lot of us see their developer peers (especially this handsome individual) write wonderful technical articles. They’re sharing their expertise with their community and we wonder, “Maybe I should do the same?” After all, teaching is a wonderful learning tool.
So there’s the obvious question of where should you write your content? You can start your own WordPress blog or write on an existing platform like Medium. You could also write guest posts for existing publications.
But the larger struggle is finding out what to write about. Writer’s block is a well known problem both for new and experienced writers. You’re stuck staring at a white page because you’re not sure what to write about.
And, as you stare at that white page, you just end up more and more frustrated. You start to question whether you should be writing in the first place. But a lot of writers end up overcoming writer’s block after a while. It’s not something that has to define you.
