But is validation from others ultimately the only reason why we contribute? Or do we write and share our opinions, wisdom, expertise and whatever skills we have in a hope that it might do someone, somewhere, somehow, some good?

Personally, my main motivation (well of course besides validation) to diary something is to 'spread the word'. Silly hope that advocacy might have more effect if a few others are convinced, or to get some understanding. From Lebanon diaries to train diaries. (Even my autumn blogging was kind of a tourist commercial...)
