Agreed on all counts!  How many times have you searched for a solution and found part of it on a blog, part on stackoverflow and part in a message buried 10 threads deep in a forum?  That's a post right there!  Pull it together, describe why your unique situation required this specific solution.  Tell how you achieved your goals and built value for your company/customer.  In the end you will get: 1. Practice writing/communicating; 2. A great personal technical guide/reference; 3. A gateway into the community; and 4. A line-item on your CV.

I'm starting up my SQL blog this weekend - Post #1 is exactly what this article describes too! Took me upwards of a week mucking about with LDAP and linked servers and countless forums to figure out a solution. Good article; appreciate the encouragement :)

Nice article!

I had these difficulties and doubts 1 year ago, when I started my SQL Server Blog: "SQL Server Dicas" (Portuguese - Brazil).

I also believe that everyone can contribute in some way!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, need to start blogging again. :) I actually wrote up a 2 part series last week, just haven't hit post yet, lol.

Seriously though, great encouragement for people!  Interesting how we always think someone else has more things to say then ourselves via blog posts, but get us in person and most of us can't stop talking. :)

I support Barack Obama for president of the US and I see that there are already many incorrect ideas about him. I want to have a Blog that analyzes the information about him and about the American political system, in general. I would appreciate any professional help I can get to do this.
