Ohhh…what the heck. I don’t mind being the devil’s advocate.

Blogs have given everyone access to a big potential audience that they may well, or may well not deserve.
Ego- showcases, if I may be so blunt. Consider if you really have the necessary talent to command the attention of others. Would anyone be necessarily interested in the minute details of your project or daily thoughts?

When I first started frequenting woodworking forums blogs were rare or nonexistant. I came to these forums as a source of information/learning from those who’d been doing it a while. That’s still what I look for. Participate, ask questions, and observe. Learn from those who have something to offer. It takes some time to discover them, but I’ve seldom thought I could learn much from someone whose experience level only matches mine.

My opinion only.
