I don't want you to think of this as just some writing - some process of converting keyboard strokes into something that can reach one or ten or millions. No. Listen to me. We're here to make a dent in the universe. Otherwise, why even be here? We're creating a completely new consciousness, like an artist or poet. That's how you have to think of this. We're rewriting the history of human thought with what we're doing.

"Very ambitious! And you just re-phrased the whole dialogue from that famous movie! you have never done that ", another Rahul from my mind whom I make conversations with occasionally told me.

"That's what I feel, it is not always that I feel something like this", I replied.

"But you have never written before like I don't remember", He said.

"I will start", I said.

"What if you will fail? Like you have in many things before", He asked.

"It's okay as long as I am trying and I enjoy it. I am going to do this", I replied.

"I am going to do this !", I said to myself.

So Hello and welcome to my blog

I'm Rahul Rathod aka raaulc, I'm an iOS developer and also have a bit of interest in web3 and React. I'm currently working as an iOS developer for M&S London.

I have tried to write before but never written, many times I have written a draft but then thought - No one is going to read this and I just kept it there. So this time when I saw the writing Bootcamp by Hashnode, it just told me to start again and write anything I want. My learning on iOS, My experiments with web3, and other things I am learning like React, and also I wanted to talk somewhere about the side projects. So I think this blog can be a home to the lots of experiments I am doing or going to do.

My expectations from this journey

The first one is to Just start.

I firmly believe sharing whatever you learn with any medium be it writing or video format can benefit ourselves and many other people as well.

So, in a nutshell, it can be summarised as -

  1. Just Start
  2. Keep Writing 🤞🏻.

The First day

Also today many of the Hashnode writers including me attended the first day of Hashnode Bootcamp and learned stuff about technical writing, I myself am a beginner now so I thought about including this topic in this article too to include the review of a beginner mindset!

So I attended the first day and loved it! So many peers around and lots of talk about technical writings.

Sam Sycamore, Quincy Larson, and Edidiong Asikpo were simply awesome. I enjoyed a lot listening to them. I have learned many things before from them, Specially mention to Larson from whom we have read learned via freecodecamp in any possible way.

The whole session was full of knowledge and motivation for people starting in technical writing. Awesome hosting an amazing Q&A.

Now if you are still reading this, don't hesitate to give comments, writing tips, or mistakes I am making, or any suggestions, anything you can think of is welcome.

Again, I will end by saying it again, Keep believing in yourself. We're here to make a dent in the universe and one day we all will find our Mojo.
