8 Benefits to Building a Tech Blog in 2023

I posted my first engineering-related blog post in 2020. Since then, my career has blossomed into more than I could have imagined, and I have seen a lot of benefits from writing technical blogs and creating videos.

If you are an engineer with love for writing and looking for a passion project, then building a tech blog may be a great fit for you. If you are not into writing, you can still benefit from writing a tech blog.


Note: Do not let the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools and the pressure to rank with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) deter you from writing your own tech blog.

Here are 8 benefits of building a tech blog.


  1. You upskill in non-technical areas like writing, editing, and marketing (if you choose to promote your skill).

  2. You become the teacher rather than the student.

  3. You start to build a solution repository that you can refer to in the future.

  4. You start to convey technical thoughts to others.

  5. You start to build a portfolio that you can link to your resume.

  6. You could land your next role by the recognition your blog posts or videos receive.

  7. You start to build a brand.

  8. You can turn you blog into a business.


Here is an honorable mention. This benefit was provided by Joshua Erney, who also has a tech blog.


You grow to like documentation. 😀

This is the first blog post on the benefits of building a tech blog. In the following weeks I will expand on each benefit.
