→Blogging and Open Source
Open source also values writing like this for the historical perspective it gives. Long after project or code decisions are made, we often need and want to go back and understand why things happened as they did. Blogging contributes to the historical record.
Finally, blogging provides a way to capture our hard
word and contributions. When students are applying for jobs, it's helpful to have something they can point to, in order to showcase their previous work. By keeping a blog now, you help build a record of your abilities, experience, and contributions.
Having your own blog will enable you to more easily join the global open source community. A blog gives you a voice, which you can use when and how you want.
