Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think I just discovered a small feature in Eclipse that I hadn't heard about before, that I think is pretty useful. I have read a good amount of blogs on using Eclipse efficiently, but I never came across this thing. Now I want to let other people know/give back to community since I benefit a lot from random things posted online.

What is the best way to go about this? I know I could keep a blog, but getting people to follow and read it would be a lot of work, especially since I don't discover much :) The obvious answer in my mind was to ask a question on Stack Overflow and answer it myself. Is that ever a good option? Any other suggestions?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Now I am curious about your discovery ... let me know about it when you post it please. – Marcelo Dec 2 '11 at 17:12

Setting up your own blog and posting it there is a good way to so, or emailing a renown blogger asking him to blog about it may be an alternative.

What you are suggesting is absolutely fine (ask a question and answer it), though one has to wonder about how many eyeballs it will end up getting.

This is a good example of why there should be a Stack Overflow Community Blog. Many of the other SE sites have their own blogs for this sort of thing; why shouldn't SO?
