MongoDB: To Blog or Not to Blog

Good morning, Oracle Elitists!

I have a quick question for all of you who read my posts. I have recently been given the opportunity at work to learn and support our MongoDB project. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Mongo, here is Wikipedia’s definition:

MongoDB (from humongous) is a free and open-source cross-platform document-oriented database. Classified as aNoSQL database, MongoDB avoids the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor of JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (MongoDB calls the format BSON), making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster. MongoDB is developed by MongoDB Inc. and is free and open-source, published under a combination of the GNU Affero General Public License and the Apache License. As of July 2015, MongoDB is the fourth most popular type of database management system, and the most popular for document stores.

Since I exploit my work experiences to find subjects to blog about, I need to hear from you. Should I blog about this subject? Are you interested in Mongo or are you exclusively Oracle DBA’s who have no desire to hear about new trends? Believe me, I understand that point of view. Most of my DBA coworkers are in that camp.

Please let me know. A lack of response means I will have to taint this otherwise exclusively Oracle blog page with a test post with a MongoDB theme.

Thanks, in advance, for your thoughtful responses.
