This survey is always incredibly interesting. I'm sure a lot of us on
this list participated, and the number of total participants this year
blew me away. Over 32,000! That's amazing.

One results I found really interesting in a timely way is that 72% of
web professionals have a blog. I just started a blog for the first
time on years and only have a couple posts at the moment.. and I
actually find this statistic a little discouraging.

Do I have anything new to add to a field that already has
approximately 22,000 voices? Probably not. Am I still going to write
and post what I have to say? Yes, I probably will.

What about the rest of you that have blogs about our shared profession?

I blog (have blogged) primarily for my own benefit - to clarify concepts,
ideas to myself. It is similar approach to the one expressed in the saying
that "teaching is one of the best ways to learn". Thus it does not matter if
there were tens of thousands of opinions expressing ideas similar to mine
- I will benefit from the writing anyway.
