I can endorse pretty much everything Ben Werdmuller says about blogging in this post, including his recommendations for blogging platforms. But this is the bit that's the most important: "When you blog, you're building up a body of work that represents you online. It's a gateway into your thought process more than anything else. So do what moves you.... The only thing that's really important is that you keep doing it. I can tie every single major advance in my career to blogging. It's been hugely important in my personal life, too. I couldn't recommend it more." Same here. I wouldn't have a career without blogging. And for all my professional output, my blog posts are the best of me.
