What to blog??

I’ve been trying to figure out what to blog.  Like everyone else in the world I can’t blog about confidential information I’m privy to from my employer and/or clients.  The problem is that THIS content makes up about 90% of what I know about and deal with on a day to day basis.  That leaves things that are too personal or too opinionated to publish publicly.  I also want to avoid just blogging the bloggers…. Although this may be perfectly valid content for some of the people who read my blog, because apparently they don’t really read blogs. I’m special.  Thanks guys! J


The amount of interesting info I come across each day is usually pretty big.  So perhaps I can just focus on something which I alluded to in my first blog post.  Perhaps I’ll just record some nuggets of information I find which I will probably like to refer to later…. like my second and third blog posts.  This appears to be popular amongst my tiny crowd of readers.  If only they’d leave more comments so I “look” popular! J   (Adam … Jo… )


I’m not doing a lot at the moment with work.  So, I imagine my pool of bloggable content will get larger once I get busier out on-site.  The evangelist guys are just blogging machines and there is no way I’ll reach the same level of output as Frank Arrigo or David Lemphers … but hopefully the quality will be just as good (to my tiny crowd of readers).

    blog about the things you are passionate about  –  simple as that

    alternatively use your blog as a knowledgebase, as you suggest. thing you want to remember for later – the power of search will help you find it again, and maybe you get to answer a question for someone too

    Hi Frank. Thanks for the advice.

    hopefully the more I blog the easier I’ll be able to talk about the things I’m passionate about… that’s what I hear anyway 🙂

    Brad Smith , from MCS Canberra, seems to have started blogging. He asks a legitimate question: as a consultant

  4. I had the same problem when I started blogging. But I found a way to blog about stuff I encountered at my work for clients or my employer. Strip it to the bare minimum and don’t mention the clients name. Make sure it’s not recognisable to anyone in the organisation. I also blog to keep track of things I found on the internet.

    Good tips Jan.  Thanks.

    I read Irena Kennedy’s blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/irenak/ which is called "AppDev: Something You Should Know".   Every day she puts up a little gold nugget of information.  I love it. 🙂
