Why blog?

Blogging has been around for quite some time now. It was all the rave a few years ago, and was the new, trendy, hip thing to do. Then we had the emergence of social networking sites like myspace (which I despise) and facebook which allowed even the most introductory web surfers to establish a web presence. Now weather the content was actually useful is highly debatable.

I sidestepped the blogosphere when it first debuted, but I’ve made an about-face and decided to embrace it now. Why the change of heart? Because I feel I can contribute meaningful stuff. Many of my google searches, and I’m sure you’ve experienced the same, have landed on some blog that has empowered me with valuable information. So — I’d like to give back. I can’t recall the amount of times people have asked me on how to do something, or information on some topic that I did some research on, and I’ve had to strain my memory, or dig through my mail/browser history to find the information in question. Solution? Blog it!

So, completely selfless intentions? Not quite. Countless times, I have myself forgotten how I tackled a problem have lost valuable information that I spent hours gathering. Blogging it would be one way to make it easier for me to find — I hope.

So there it is. Let’s see where this goes.
