Considering past discussions about blogging, here is another take on the value of blogging by Dirk Singer and why it isn't dead just yet or being replaced by Twitter. He lists some reasons why he finds it valuable, which I’ll summarise as follows:
- To create a dialogue with like minded people;
- To gather and collect information;
- To practice and fine tune writing skills; and
- Build personal brand.
I actually see a strong element of Personal Knowledge Management in these benefits, but lets not get caught up with definitions.
Overall, these are all good reasons to blog if you ask me!
