IT blog as a work book for a programmer?

Hello!
I'm a freelance programmer (freelance exchange).

I started a personal blog (in English) (code, scripts, configs, tutorials) to:
  • as a portfolio (to show a future employer my level of knowledge)
  • as “work book” (anything) on the occasion of the closing of the freelance exchange
  • as personal notes


Your opinion:
  1. And yet, does it make sense? (maybe am I just kidding myself?)
  2. Whether to disseminate my articles via habra, medium, etc (from the point of view of finding future work) (or it's only for the FSI?)
  3. Whether or not to be active on Stackoverflow (from the point of view of finding future work)
  4. How to show that I don't ctrl+c ctrl+v? (personal screenshots, MB something else?)


Your any thoughts? Thank you! :)

P. S. on github and bitbucket can not see my activity as the projects in private repos

1. Personal blog, if you optimize it correctly, will be able to give you leads from search. For example, you can write several articles on the subject, "Find a programmer and not to lose", "a Good programmer is all gold." I.e., entering the meta tags in the text of the queries that can search for such a specialist. Yes, it is a purely commercial story but you do work for money, isn't it, and it's not because of love to art, and to find customers.

2. A person who writes, always "above the head", one says. Of course, provided that they are on approximately the same level and people do not write nonsense.

3. Not to pass copy-paste, write in your blog that is your personal article, unique content, and if someone wants to use the reference is obligatory. Git, etc. the profile of the community was not canceled.

Success, the right direction. Better to do it than not to. By the way I have found yourself a developer on one project on Bitrix is through his blog, in search results.

Depending on nakuu position is calculated. If the technical writer, you should. If the programmer, it is better to Github.

I have a good profile on habr.com stackoverflow.com github.com toster It never helped me in the search or communication with employers, customers. This helps to maintain the shape.

The meaning of course is. Personally, I at the time was "Teddy" blog-type notes by the webmaster. He gave me leads. Although there are more expressive of my opinion present ... of Course when I leveled out I removed all the blog I was ashamed of the heresy that I wrote.

In General I think that the blog is good. But we need to recapitulate it on as their professional growth and cleaned if necessary. For if you develop, things you thought were truth, might look like a mistake with the height of past years.

And of course Git has not been canceled. But in General - you need to blog. It develops a person.

1. Of course, it's PR
2. Of course you should, it's PR
3. Of course, but I would recommend the Toaster over on Stackoverflow admins.
4. And that someone is suspected? If a person has a blog, writes on Habr and has a good rating on the Toaster, the matter is closed.

There are 2 types of people. Those that seek to build the rest. First earn more.

Depending on how intensively you are going to invest. IMHO these blogs can be interesting, if you're experienced and "seasoned". I would be more focused on existing resources - Habr, United stackoverflow, Yandex.Zen, and the medium, etc. still, there is more life, more CA.
Whether to disseminate my articles via habra, medium, etc (from the point of view of finding future work) (or it's only for the FSI?)

As a source for job search it is hardly possible to consider the first few years,provided if you're an active writer. Rather good luck can catch something, well, not without CDA here))
Whether or not to be active on Stackoverflow (from the point of view of search the future of work)

Should be active on all relevant resources possible, but again - as a source of job search at the initial stage can be seen as very passive.

Search for explicitly, submit a resume, have an active github account, often this is a portfolio of a programmer)

Ultimately nesvedov person can throw dust in the eyes, a knowledgeable colleague, weighing and reading all about you and about you, put your competent opinion. Remember, "anything said can and will be used against you", weigh each letter.
