if you’re not sharing your ideas, code, solutions to problems, and the like via a blog or other social content tools then you’re doing yourself a disservice.

When I look back at how I went from less-than-zero to a successful company, many factors come into play, but one pivotal factor that stands out to me is my sharing of information via my blog. While I had no idea that it would allow me to create a whole consulting business around specific needs, it is a pretty good indicator that if you think something is important, and you solve a problem that others have not, then it is of value to someone else.

Your solutions don’t have to be technical; it can be as simple as new ways to organize your day, to as complex as theoretical physics though practical exercises. Regardless of the topic, blogging is an incredibly simple way to share your life experience with others.

About writing

writingc_prompt

Socrates said, "The misuse of language induces evil in the soul." He wasn't talking about grammar. To misuse language is to use it the way politicians and advertisers do, for profit, without taking responsibility for what the words mean. Language used as a means to get power or make money goes wrong: it lies. Language used as an end in itself, to sing a poem or tell a story, goes right, goes towards the truth.

A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper.
