Hello all.
at some point i thought i should have my own blog simply because i found all people around me talk about blogging.
I don't know but i beleive that most blogs content is insignificant with little real value. I think people who should blog are those who have some proficiency in their field. because those are the people who really have something to say. My feeling is that I should not blog unless i'm sure i know a lot and have a lot of interesting things to say otherwise i feel i just must shut up and keep quite!
Sometimes i try writing some blog post but find that the thing i want to say have been said and written thousands of times by probably thousands of people; so i just resist the Idea to keep repeating the same useless stuff. I even once was temped by Idea to write only this sentence in my blog "I have Noting To Tell You!"
What is the sign of a successful blog? probably the number of your blog viewers and also the number of replies you get for you posts i suppose, No?
if those two factors are not good enough do you think it's better to delete the blog and only concentrate on other things like reading books and coding?

Do you guys blog frequently/daily? what do think about all this issue of blogging?

thanks.

Only if you're unemployed. Given the current state of the economy, I would say Yes, its for everyone!

Or for people who are so good at what they do that they have spare time to educate others for free. Kind of like JavaRanch works :-)

Yes, i said in my post that people who should blog should have high proficiency in their fields. I agree we do benefit from those kind of high profile bloggers.
I meant Not all people are so good in what they do and though they keep blogging which for me is Not good. I might be wrong .
