Until recently I was considering writing blogs a waste of engineers time. But then I realized that because I’m benefiting from reading other peoples blogs, writing my tech blog is then, in a way, paying back to the community, same way like contributing to open source projects is.
One disagreement about blogging I had was: why all authors writing on the same subject don’t join their forces and contribute to the wiki on the subject? Well, apparently recognition is a human basic need. I just needed to grow up to accept that fact.
