I find that blogging what I learn is an excellent way to reinforce understanding and establish a credible history of subject matter expertise.

Yes, a lot! And six months ago I totally knew that I had (and still have) to learn and discover. And indeed I knew (and know) that I didn't knew lot of things. This is funny, seems like a tonguetwister to me. I don't think everything I know so far is 100% true, I'm sure lot can change while I'm learning and discovering new and interestings things from SQL Server. Since I landed my first full time DBA job it has been a neverending process of learning and learning, each day new things to learn.

Something you tend to notice in universities is the further through you get the more you realise you don't know.  Especially true for subjects where so much is based on opinion, but can be less obviously true for areas of 'fact' - until the 'facts' change, and with it the entire belief system you hold.  

Chemistry and Physics being notorious for that - teach one 'model' at one level, then the next level throws that model away and teaches a new one. I must have gone through a dozen different atomic models by the time I finished school, only to see another set at University.

Perhaps that is one of a good educations more positive points, the ability to let go of learning to learn a higher level and not feel the initial learning was wasted - even if you were :)

I suspect that is one of the friction points between accidental/part time SQL Devs and career SQL DBAs...
