Being Helpful on the Internet

Post your work

It goes without saying that you should be posting your original work, including projects you’ve worked on, blog posts you’ve written, and talks you’ve given. Tag and thank people accordingly, and they might help you spread your work. People will primarily follow you to get updates and inspiration as you continue to do great work. As Daniel Vassallo says, “Make something interesting in real life, and go share it where people are interested in what you did.”

Rewrite content you like from others

You might feel that you haven’t done anything interesting yet. That’s fine. One good way to get started is retweeting content you like from others. As you become more able to add value yourself, you can start alternating between retweets and your own original content.
