Mixster started out in 2017, out of raw ideas for me to have my own corner of the web. There I was, a freshmen struggling to make something for myself. Depressed actually. New concept, new rules in this strange new place was a bit overwhelming for me. But, I know I had to change. I know I had to improve. Hence, I started looking outside for thoughts, inspiration and ideas. And in this turmoil brewing inside me, Mixster emerged.
Back in June 2017, I joined the Dgplug Summer Training, I remember when I first started writing on this blog with like 40 odd views views. And now, I a see Mixster realising its full potential in the last years with 85k+ views, 200k insights. All that with little or no advertising, hundreds of dollars earned, and a steady following of the content I writer motivated me to go further. Something that would be meaningful for the entire community that has done so much more me. Something more than just a blog.
What is the big news?
I am very excited to share the update that Mixster over the past year has grown into becoming a small community of writers, engineers, developers, researchers, scientists. People who come from all walks of life. People that are experts in their fields with one very special thing in common. They love to write. Be it content, docs and blogs on topics they know, they have worked with and have experience in.
Mixster is an initiative to give back to the community in the most constructive way I know how. I hand-pick folks working and contributing to some of the biggest open-source organisations. Help them, support them financially with challenging projects and gigs from OSS startups, and organisations who want help to make their content, posts, blogs, docs more inclusive, & interactive.
