Blogging for keeping track of stuff

My friend, Lilia Efimova is wrapping up her PhD thesis work on the subject of blogging and has a nice summary of a number of Reasons for using weblog to keep information bits.  I see these as all elements of personal knowledge management where weblogs provide lots of assistance.

  • Portability / Number of access points.
  • Preservation of information in its current state / Currency of information.
  • Context (remembering why it was saved) / Reminding.
  • Ease of integration into existing structures.
  • Communication and information sharing.
  • Ease of maintenance.

Do you find it interesting that Communication and Information Sharing is in that list?  I am convinced that a major element of "personal knowledge management" and personal effectiveness in general is the ability to exchange information and ideas with others.
