Reflections on blogging

8 September, 2009 § 4 Comments

I started this blog in November of 2008 and have grown as a learner and a writer over this time period. I remember reading a post a while back by Dare Obasanjo where he talks about how blogging affects his learning.

When I write a blog post, I feel implicitly forced to explain my reasoning and do a little deeper digging. From doing this, I’ve come to the conclusion that what separates most people from being considered “knowledgeable” is the amount of investigation that a person is willing to spend.

The same can be applied to researching fixes for a software bug. If a bug is considered a must-fix high-severity bug, the bug is much more likely to get found and fixed by a developer willing to do the research and investigation necessary to find and fix the bug. Further, this developer is likely to gain a “knowledgeable” reputation.

Agree or disagree, let me know in the comments.
