Thoughts of an IT expert

Why blog at all? (and indieblog.page)

What a coincidence: I was just thinking about why I blog at all, when I saw a post from Andreas Gohr in my feed reader with the announcement of indieblog.page. Cool site to discover blogs!

But to answer the question why I blog, here are a few answers that come to mind off the top of my head:

  1. Although I am rather introverted, I somehow have a need to communicate. My blog allows me to communicate without getting on other people’s nerves too much.
  2. My blog gives me the opportunity to look back later on what I’ve been up to.
  3. Sometimes my blog is just a notebook and helps me find links I’ve shared.
  4. My blog legitimizes that I spend so many hours developing the software behind it.
  5. It feels good to create something myself and then make it available to everyone.
  6. Through the blog I repeatedly come into contact with a wide variety of people.
  7. If I ever have questions, there are often helpful comments that help me.
