If you don't have a blog you may in the future be turned down for a job, according to a post on Joel on Software
OK, so in this case the guy is a software developer who was turned down for a job developing blogging software--duh-- in favour of another developer who maintains a blog. But he raises a good point.

"I'm not sure if I want my grandchildren to poke around on Google in 40 years, and learn that I wasted much of my youth arguing about XML text file formats with other bloggers."
