TOC: A brief introduction to Vim

Hello everybody. I wanted to write about a topic I am fond with and hopefully show someone something they didn't know about that topic or even introduce someone to a new topic and give them a good resource for the beginning.

So I did write 9 posts about a commandline editor called Vim to try if writing is something I enjoy.

I received more positive feedback than I excepted through likes, comments and follows on dev.to.

I will probably soon start writing about other topics I like and hopefully can contribute positively.
