Are you learning any thing new? or Looking for ways to concretize what you learnt? or Want to share something you discovered that takes more than a google search? or Do you simply want to share your thoughts and ideas?
Then you should write a blog!
I am listing my 5 top reasons to write a blog when you are learning something new.
It is almost impossible to write a good blog without doing ample amount of research. While you may do some research while learning something, in order to write about it you will need a lot more content than what you have learnt.
If you are trying to learn basic syntax of html. You will learn only about the syntax of html. But for you to write a good blog on syntax of html, you will have to gather a lot more content, like when, what and how the syntax of html is formulated.
So in the end, you will be more knowlegable than just learning the syntax.
One of the key turn of events in any ones success story is when they get recognized by the world for the knowledge and talent.
By writing a blog about what you are learning and sharing it, you are showcasing all the things you know and how good you are in communicating what you know. This attracts a lot of recruiters and you don't have to explicitly prove them how good you are.

By writing blog about something you are learning, you are helping a community of people looking for the same knowledge you have. You are not only learning but also helping the community of whatever you are learning.
