How long have you been in the tech? Depends on your number of years and impact made that will decide which route

I have 9+ years of Technical Experience. I’m not an Entrepreneur.

Generally, for your experience range, Exceptional Talent route is advised.
Some of the documents you mentioned may not be highly appealing in itself like the degree certificate, course certificate etc. But you can still package all your academic achievments into a solid story together provided the university is highly reputed and the professor is a rock star in his field etc.
The techical blog can be shown but you should subtanstiate that it has sufficient traffic with some stats.

General rule -
<5 years experience = promise

5 years = talent

You gotta work on your evidence though. Easy hack - see example documents in the guide and use exactly that to fit the criteria.

Similar to this… please, let me have your review, guys…
