Blogging builds your personal information repository
Bostjan Spetic made the point in a blog article I recently read. I totally agree. Just a few days ago my debug certificate expired and my post about it resolved the issue in seconds. I still would have found the information on Google but it would taken longer. Here was Bostjan complete thought on the matter:
This is another reason why I decided to blog. Every day we are bombarded with tons of information we try to consume. Every one of us has his/her own way of looking for particular information. Blogging, however, helps archive information you will sooner or later need again. I regularly browse my blog and in this way remind myself of issues, solutions, and ideas I might have already forgotten, but are still useful. Sometimes it’s fun and a bit of an ego boost (we all need it from time to time) to check how far you’ve come.
Being your own filter for the waves of information we receive every day. Now that’s working smarter and not harder.
