Starting a blog can be both exciting and challenging. When I decided to start my own blog called Shyju Talks, I had doubts and worries. I was unsure if people would be interested in what I had to say because I wasn’t confident in my English grammar. Plus, there are already so many tech blogs out there, so I wondered if my blog would be any good. These thoughts stopped me from writing even a single line.

Sharing the Creative Process

“Show Your Work” emphasizes the value of sharing the creative process behind your work. As I started my blogging journey, I discovered that sharing my thoughts, challenges, and successes allows readers to connect with me on a personal level.

Embracing Community and Collaboration

The book also highlights the importance of building a community and collaborating with others. Through my blog, I have realized the power of connecting with like-minded individuals who share a passion for technology.

The blogging community is a lively ecosystem that encourages collaboration, learning, and collective growth.

Through my blog, Shyju Talks, I aim to share my growth, insights, and creative process, creating a community of passionate individuals who can learn, connect, and grow together.
