Blogging as Live Biography?

Those who are old enough may remember the word Blog is actually a shortened form of Web Log.  As in, you log on the web, a then-new form of diary.

The Blogging evolution
With the explosion of Social Media in the last decade+, blogging has gone from a personal pursuit to a well-established, massive, and profitable industry.

Progression is great; it validates the value of blogging. That’s why I am (and you are!) here.

Thinking….Blog = Biography
As we blog, are we not creating a biography?

In the future, don’t you think, our children can read our blog to get to know us deeper?

 biography, or simply bio, is a detailed description of a person’s life. It involves more than just the basic facts like education, work, relationships, and death; it portrays a person’s experience of these life events. Unlike a profile or curriculum vitae (résumé), a biography presents a subject’s life story, highlighting various aspects of his or her life, including intimate details of experience, and may include an analysis of the subject’s personality. (Wikipedia)

Should one be interested in publishing a biography, wouldn’t the personal blog be a prime resource?

How much and how often can/should one share in a blog to make it a biography-in-making?
