Inglorious Blogging: Intention Versus Reality
People blog for a lot of reasons, I suppose. Some people just need free therapy - a place to dump out all the random thoughts in their head. Some people blog to hone their writing skills.

This Is My Lunch Break: The Perceived Non-Value Of Blogging
This just in: blogs do not contribute to value creation. So I've just recently heard on an otherwise very constructive conference call.
