Should I be leaving edit comments on edits to my own questions?

I find when I'm reviewing, or generally searching for a question; and I happen to edit an answer/question, I always leave an edit comment/reason of what I did, and sometimes why.

But when I edit my own questions, I don't usually leave an edit reason, is this a bad practice? Especially if I have to edit it several times to correct small things, better phrase something, updates from comments and answers, and more details as I debug the issue myself?

You edit your own questions for editing sake? – Grant Thomas Dec 14 '11 at 15:48
I edit my own question to improve the quality of it, and provide necessary updates/details I might not have known when originally asking, or requested by comments to the question. – Brian Deragon Dec 14 '11 at 15:52
I see a number of reasons specified there. :/ – Grant Thomas Dec 14 '11 at 15:53

No, its totally your call. On other people's questions, etiquette dictates that you explain your edit, but on your own questions, etiquette will not interfere
