When building my pet projects, I used to get bored and leave them in between. Hackathons on Hashnode create a competitive environment that hits me every moment to keep building it and take it to the finish line.

We also get constructive reviews on the hackathons' blogs on Hashnode that motivates us to make the product better. Other than that I bought a Fujifilm XT-3 camera from the prize money of my last win.

It motivated me to look up ways to streamline the development process more effectively and break it down to easier steps for my readers to follow.

The entries that I've written for the writhathon have quickly become some of my most read articles. Excited to join another writhathon by Hashnode!

Participating in Hashnode hackathons is an awesome experience as I have been struggling with inconsistency and procrastination, but with the challenges.

I'm able to plan myself and get an idea to write on. With the cash prize I won, I'll use it to buy a screen
