  • Why people don't do it

    • I'm not an expert
      • You don't have to be one
      • You will be helping someone at Level 0 to come to Level 1
      • Triangle - a lot of the people are beginners (at the base)
    • Someone already wrote about it
      • Think about journalists - do you really think one does not cover news because another fellow already thought about it?
    • Why write the same thing
      • What about your view on that topic?
      • What if all others are difficult to understand and you nail it for a beginner?
  • Why you should actually do it?

    • Help others

    • When you try to explain something, you learn it better.

    • If someone looks at your blog, they know you are familiar with things

    • I'm not asking you to write only tech, write anything

      It is a blog, sure, but it is also a wiki. It's a spot where I can post ideas, snippets, resources, thoughts, collections, and other bits and pieces that I find interesting and useful. Instead of always being a "performance" level of blogging, it can be a looser more human endeavor that drops the idea of robots sorting the content (in this case simply by date created) and embraces the idea of curation, by me, for you.

      • Write how you wish things should be
      • If you like a course that you took recently, write why.
      • If you are building something, journal the progress
      • Consider your blog as a digital garden
