    I'm just curious as to how many people around here keep a "personal" blog, where they track their success and such. And I guess, technically make some affiliate sales from your reader base as well.

    I'm talking about something like JC, or Shoe$.

    Do you keep a personal blog? If so, how often do you update it?

    Reason I ask is that I've been considering starting one to track my success, and possibly build up a reader base..not sure if it's worth the time and effort though.

    may as well, what's the worst that could happen? I post whenever I feel like it, not really promoting it right now.

    I have one too but its more like a personal resume for when I apply to cpa/affiliate companies, it can come in handy and if kept updated can look quite professional.

    I have a private not indexed blog/journal where I curse myself out and write a bunch of random thoughts I have.

    I don't really keep a personal log but I have a technical support blog influenced by what I do.

    Basically if I have a certain programming/web development issue, I describe it on my blog and provide the solution or way I got out of it. Nothing personal in it though - maybe when life gets interesting enough to post everyday I'll change that. Anyway, it doesn't really get any traffic but since its both a personal log and support blog, I don't mind. It also came in handy when I had to re-create my sites as I encountered the same problems and simply referred to my blog for the solution.
