A Developer's Guide to Blogging

A Comprehensive Guide to Earning Extra Income through Blogging.

If you had asked me if I would ever make money from my blogging, I would have said no. I lack any special talent, gift, or even a writer to mentor me.

I’ve made more than $50,000 from writing in the last 2 years.

If I can make money from writing, you can too.

How Do I Get Technical Writing Partnerships?

I cold emailed, and DM’d a few startup CEOs/CTOs on Twitter, pitching about my skills and how I can solve their problems as I already write technical blogs in my quarter-time role, and out of 10–20 emails, DMs, which I sent initially; I received 5–6 follow-up emails asking to share my past or current work and set up some initial meetings and this what I needed just to continue my writing business.

Now coming to the point of how I land these opportunities, Mostly via cold emails/DM.

I make an educated guess.


[first name] @ [company]. com

[first initial] [last name] @ [company]. com

[first name]. [last name] @ [company]. com

[last name] @ [company]. com

The full story is available in a blog post linked below.

How I Made $30,000 From Writing in 1 Year

This book will teach you practical methods for creating powerful cold emails while also encouraging you to take a chance.

This is not your typical reference book. Instead, I'd like to show you that you can write a good technical blog and earn money with just a little bit of knowledge. I only cover topics of which I have firsthand knowledge. The majority of the information I provide here is irrelevant to those who believe in magic.

Finding writing leads is stressful. There are dozens of applicants, and you're up against people with years of experience.

Most people don't get the answer to their cold DMs & Emails why because they just don't know how to simply send interesting Emails/DMs.

Have a look at one example email, How I approached.

Why you should buy this book?

Trying to find a technical writing job in IT and want employers to contact you? and If you're tired of the never-ending search and believe your cold email/DM isn't getting seen, this book will teach you how to design a distinctive email/DM that will be viewed by the founders, community managers, and organisations you desire. I'll explain how I obtained corporate leads through cold emails/DMs.

Earn money, make connections, and get noticed.

I earn $600 to $1200 per article when writing tutorials — and with a few projects, that money adds up. But money isn't the only reason to write.

Here are some of my most recent earnings from technical writing.

Consider this real-time example:

A Full-time technical writer/developer advocate/developer relations is getting on an average of $30-90k in Asia and 2-4x that in the US/EMEA.

Most of these businesses do not want to spend their weeks writing content. Even if they manage to find a great person and get one good piece of content every week from them, that's $1k-$5k per technical blog.

And maintaining similar volume/velocity/quality internally is difficult since the best technical employees get burned out soon from generating content and/or get pulled into other projects because no marketing team ever has enough technical people.

This is where you can fill a gap in their backlog and become a good player from the outside & it's a win win for both business and you as creator.
