I encourage everyone to start a blog, write stuff. When you face a problem, fixes it, and there's no docs on it anywhere, blog about it. It might help someone else, maybe even after 10, 20 years :)
Your writings may influence others, perhaps someone who came across your blog while wandering through the internet.
Hey, I still remember some things I've read in random blogs I came across when roaming around the world wide web and that have influenced me, yes ;)
Some years back, I tried to cross-compile PHP to Android ARM (yes, I did that :P). It was very difficult. There was only this one Chinese person who made a doc on it.
Even though it was in Chinese, it was very helpful ! I was veryyyy grateful for that person then !!
I came across the blog of a chechi who graduated from our college in 2009. She blogged about college life, her worries about studies, exam preparations, stuff like that.
There was this one post of a pet cat they had in the Ladies' Hostel.
Now, every time I see a cat in college, I think of that post and tell myself "this must be the descendant of that cat".
That blog post from 2007 has influenced me. These blogs are a way for curious people like me to know how college was like in the past.
