Writing a blog post encourages reflection much like recording thoughts in a journal. Some questions I ask myself are: Is the resource credible -- can I trust it? Is the resource important -- does it make a difference? Can I apply the resource to my practice -- is it useful?
Then, if all the answers are "yes", I need to determine what to do with this resource. Is it potentially valuable to my colleagues -- should I blog about it or save it on Connotea? Or should I just bookmark it privately?
My commitment to make blogging a regular habit forces me to answer these questions in the moment rather than putting off the decision-making until later (ie., never).
