Battling StackOverflow?

I’ve been thinking about the state of this blog for the last several weeks. I upgraded my virtual server and had the opportunity to bring over the blog and associated software dependencies and data. When I first started this blog it actually had a fair bit of traffic on several of the posts that had information relevant enough for enough developers. That was the intent. Find something interesting while developing software, write a bit about it.

Then sites like Stack Overflow started coming online. I remember when one of my blog posts was linked to by an answer on Stack Overflow and my traffic for that blog post spiked. Since then, I, like many others, have created profiles on the various Stack* sites and probably am more likely to answer a question on there instead of take the time to write up a blog post on something.

Anyway, just some random thoughts. Perhaps I’ll think of a new direction to take this blog.
