Why I blog

I have been blogging for a long time now, and am very likely to continue doing so. I have my own domain, and prefer that to using one of the many, many blogging sites out there. This blog is the one that gets the most updates and attention from me, for a few reasons;
First off, it’s my personal online knowledge base. It is where I have a large amount of the solutions that I have researched and implemented in my job as a support technician.
Secondly, it’s a way to get my name “out there”, as a resource in both technical issues as well as in documentation. I have, in fact, gotten jobinterviews because of my blog, and am changing jobs come 2011 because of an interview I took after the recruiter read a few posts on my blog.
Thirdly, I like the fact that I have a soapbox from which to publish my opinions. Be it the choice of a smart phone, my thoughts on multitasking on handheld devices or anything else, I enjoy being able to voice my opinion, and track the responses to these opinions.
The fact is that I am in my third year of blogging on technical issues, and I will continue doing so for the foreseeable future, or at least, that’s how I feel now…
