I know this isn't typical but my personal site gets 3,000-10,000 visitors per day, I make a small amount of money from a single ad placement, I'm a writer so it's what I want to be doing (i.e., it's not a time waster), and I sometimes write about Perl. A blog is the right place to write about code in a personal development, eureka! kind of way. One liners and personal tests don't make it into revision control.

Google indexes are pretty site-category agnostic. I posted an Ajax snippet that hit #1 immediately for a fairly normal search term. I've found that my code-related pages generally index better than other kinds of content. I find lots of answers to my own ActionScript, JavaScript, shell, git, etc questions in blogs at least as often as manual pages.

I'm down with the Trout.

[stevieb]: choroba my GPS home device is done, at least prototype v1 is. I'm just making sure all of my code does what it says now
[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
[stevieb]: I don't write tests for the lower-level distributions (ie. ICs, sensors etc) within those distributions, I have all tests in a master distribution which encompasess all of the sub-modules
