Blogging is doubly beneficial for those of us who have spent some time in the unemployment lines too. Quality articles can highlight your expertise in ways that no CV or interview possibly could, and really make you stand out from the crowd.
I can attest under no uncertain circumstances that I would not have my current position if I had not been actively writing and publishing during my period of unemployment.
When potential employers see you have been consistently producing solid work even during your unpaid respite, they get the impression that you are a gold-star employee candidate who will go the extra mile, and that you are a producer.
Blogging for Infosec Island has added benefits, as the publishers spend considerable time and resources promoting the articles, and generating attention for the authors.
One example to note - Saumil Shah's post on Infosec Island regarding a Twitter Hack has garnered over 11,000 hits, and a lot of attention for Saumil!
