You guys do have a point, but it's not always like that. I installed wordpress last week for the first time and I find it awesome. My blog is not actually about what happens to me or my dog, I use it as an online curriculum, I have only made a single post (not much free time right now) but it's an interesting way to promote yourself when you're a freelance developer. You can show your work and past experiences in an informal yet acceptable way. Of course there's always going to be one useful blog for every 1298389238 blogs about pets and babies and funny youtube videos,but the whole internet is like that, not just the blogs.
