Blog's as a Journal

One of the reasons people say to blog is to "have a journal." This always seemed a little bit weird to me. I never really understood why people would say this. Blogs are public, and I don't exactly like people reading my journal.

Last night I finally realized what people meant.

A month or two ago I unlocked a 1st generation iPhone for a friend of mine. It took me a night or two to actually complete it. Because of this, I blogged about it. This saved my life last night! Another friend of mine asked me to unlock his iPhone too. If it weren't for my blog post last night, there's no way I would have been able to remember or find that information without going through the rigorous process of finding that data again.

So, what I'm trying to say here is that blogging really does work as a type of "Journal." A journal which is useful to you and other people.

If your blog is actually useful, that is.
