I wanted to follow up my own post about Blog content. In it, I was commenting on Teresa‘s post about bloggers and the information (or lack of) blogs contain. I had two points:
- blogs are not only for seasoned pros but for noobs as well
- content of a blog is a lot of time personal so you have to be interested in someone’s personal comments, thoughts and reflexions to be interested in their blogs.
The third point I feel I forgot and that I wanted to mention today is the benefit from the blogs that bloggers themselves get Blogging is nothing more than public journaling. The public aspect make the blog information or entertainment but the journaling aspect is a huge benefit to bloggers themselves. Knowing you will have to publish something forces you (or me anyway) to analyze and structure your information or your system and review your trades. A lot of times, it makes you look at yourself the way the blog readers do which gives you a whole new perspective.
It may sound selfish but if writing the blog is good for the writer, blogs with limited content are not likely to go away anytime soon.
