This is a well-written comment from an interesting point of view. That's all you need to write a blog article.

Writing HN comments is much easier than writing blog posts because the inspiration is the story that's been linked to; for a blog post you don't have that starting point, you just have a blank page. That's a heck of a barrier for most people when they're starting out.

I've considered rolling comments I've made here into blog posts. I'm not sure if that's a fox paws[0], though.

[0] I know. I did it on purpose.

If it's insightful/interesting - why not?

It's incredibly hard to search HN comments via search engines too, but I've definitely come across comments that just made me stop and think.

I take great joy in awful jokes and puns. For some reason they make me very happy.
