I'm relatively new to CodeNewbie and already am finding so many awesome and helpful articles on here to help me on my journey. I'd love to start writing technical articles too but am not sure how to start and what I should write about? What advice could you give to someone starting out?

1.Be concise, but tell all you need. The right length is 1000–2000 words, 1500 is a good tradeoff.
2.Keep it simple. Speak like you had to explain it to your grandmother.
4.Use headers h1,h2 to organize article sections
5.Go to the point step by step. Never take shortcuts.
6.Don't trust yourself, use a proofreader.
A quick addition to this - because Forem designates the h1 tag to the title of the page, articles should use h2 and beyond tags for accessibility :)
Just write what you are passionate about. Write about what discipline of software engineering you are interested in. Mobile, WebDev, DevOps, Robotics, whatever really. If you are passionate about it, I am sure other people will see, recognize and resonate with your passion.
