Released Tuesday, 26th July 2016
Good episode? Give it some love!
Do you have a blog? How many articles have you written for it? Do you find it hard to keep writing or hard to get started doing technical writing? We might be able to help you out with that this week.

You're probably aware that blogging is one of the key ways to establish yourself as a thought-leader in the industry. You'll make more connections, open more opportunities, and likely find your work more rewarding if you share your experiences and expertise through blogging.

But it can be challenging to keep writing or find time for writing. That's why I asked A. Jesse Jiryu Davis from MongoDB to share his thoughts on writing an excellent programming blog.

You'll even learn about Jesse's 5 "design patterns" for blogging to help break writer's block.
