ista2000's blog

Hello Codeforces,

As said in my last blog post on Codeforces, I have crated a blog and also made my first post. I also added some nice features(Check out the side bar ;)). Its mainly aimed for beginner programmers for now, as I am not as good myself, but I will improve the quality of post overtime. Please, check out my blog and give me suggestions on what should I post about, any improvements and so on. Your feedback will be invaluable for me. Also, if I could help anyone understand any of the topics they were struggling with, it would be a great deed for me.

Thank you in advance. Check out my blog here. For now, I will be posting everyday and slow down when the blog is fairly done :)

Thanks ista2000 for making such a beautiful blog. It will be very helpful for newbies and other programmers who find some editorial hard like me.

Let's be realistic. You will abandon this blog after at most 1 article.

    He has already written two articles as I see but yes most of the times the blogs end up after a month or so at most but let's hope he will continue it further.

      OK, let's get this straight. Don't lie to yourself. You have nothing useful to tell to community, you will achieve nothing by writing this blog, and moreover, this looks like an excuse of not solving problems.

        Attracting beginners was all I was aiming for, is that a bad idea? :/ And no, I don't make excuses, I solve enough problems in a day(Over 5/6 where each problem takes about an hour or so for me to solve)

        Just because I am not someone who is higher rated, doesn't mean I have nothing to contribute :)

You can provide the links to the contests in your "Upcoming/Running Contests" section. Wishing you good luck! :)

    Thanks, but there seems to be a bug that I cannot fix :/ Since, this is a free version for now, I am not having the full control of my blog. I will fix it as soon a I buy upgrade my membership on wordpress when I become a bit serious about blogging :) Thank you for your feedback though.

I don't want to be rude,but what's the point of writing such blogs ? Why is it so special and what's the point of writing editorials when every contest in your calendar list has its editorials ?

    Who said I will only write editorials for the calender contests? :/ There are many missing editorials on codechef and many editorials that people like me won't understand for the more complicated problems. I am keeping the community open for the beginners to feel less intimidated. For example, there was no solution of Problem A of Goodbye 2016 in the editorial, but for someone who is starting out, he will learn a LOT from the editorial I wrote(Using clever math sometimes helps).

      More complicated problems aren't for beginners,A from Goodbye 2016 has no solution because it is simple implementation problem.

        But, could teach the people(newbies) that sometimes clever math can be used to decrease the number of lines you need for the solution and also it can improve run-time complexity. That's what I intend to do. And I even got positive feedbacks :D

          Use one formula in order to reduce one 'for' ? The problem is that there are a lot of blogs with the same material.

              As CountZero pointed it's just an excuse of not improving yourselft,as i already pointed 2 times it's not because you're green(i also was so please believe me) it's because the material for beginners is repetitive and it can be found elsewhere.

                Ok, wont write anymore if this blog post here gets negative votes :D Seems like a fair decision. And, blogging is just like a hobby. It's for like...when I think I have practiced enough continuously. Let's just bunk it here.
