Benefits of writing blog posts


The first step into creating good habits is figuring out why exactly you want the habit. To me, writing blog posts seems like a good habit, but I'm unsure why. This post will attempt to convince the reader and myself of the benefits. I have combined my own ideas with the ideas by Terry Tao [1] and Gregory Gunderson [2], and grouped them.

Pedagogic benefits

Practical benefits

Collaborative benefits

By now, I hope the reader is convinced. I have, at least, convinced myself.
