There are lots of reasons to put fingers to keyboard and write a blog.
For me it isn’t about sharing this with anyone, it is actually for me. Selfish I know, but recording and writing a blog helps you clarify issues, recording them for the future or helps you debate things with other people.
I really don’t care if people agree with what I say, and put comments on the blog for no reason – I don’t care about your opinion – only mine (joking!)
Seriously, if you are starting a company, it can be very lonely. Even if there are a few of you in the company it is sometimes difficult to remember why you did things. Blogs help with that.
At Diet Chef when we started I lived in Nethybridge (anyone need a holiday home?) so communication was very important with my co-founders. It brought the use of email, phone and blogging to the fore. Andrew used a blog to communicate his marketing decisions or just document what he is thinking (he still does this now in his new startup).
So if for no other purpose but to document your entrepreneurial journey, start a blog. You can password protect it if you like. Start over at http://wordpress.com/ and share your blog on here to get others to view it.
Go on, you can write as badly as me too!Tweet
