Blogging as a by-product
Zan in his recent article with tips on blogging:
Some people blog just to blog, but I find that the most interesting blogs are the ones where blogging is just a tool of capture. You should start a new hobby or improve your current skills and blog about them. Blogging should be a by-product of an activity you do.
I agree with that, although I also think anyone can blog for whatever reasons they have. If you want to blog for the sake of blogging, do it!
For me blogging is about sharing things I learned, find interesting or thought about. It’s also about showing people a part of my life. It’s some kind of public diary.
