So I’m a little late to the party, but I think its a great idea so I’m going to join in. Chris Shiflett posted on his blog an interesting idea: pledge to blog more in 2011 (starting with this month).
So, why do I like blogs? Several reasons come to mind. Not only can they share valuable information about a subject, but they also are a window into the life/work of the writer. I’m not necessarily referring to personal information (like a diary, though there’s nothing wrong with that either), but it’s interesting to see what things others are working on.
For instance, I used to follow Matt Raible (a Java developer known for his work on AppFuse). Even though his posts are not as relevant to me now that I focus all of my time on PHP (I used to develop in Java, but we’ll save that for another post), there was still some interesting topics he covered (plus I really like the concept of AppFuse). I think with this pledge, I’m going to pick back up on following Matt.
So with that, I pledge to blog more in 2011 than I did in 2010. How about you?
