With all the talk over self-answered "blog-like" Q&As, I thought about writing my own. The idea as I understand it is to share knowledge, but my planned approach conflicts with what I think are the ideal Stack Overflow question guidelines.
I spend most of my time reading Google Maps questions and want to write a self-answered "blog-like" entry about adding custom text to map markers.
However, if I were to ask it as a regular question, I would call it a duplicate (I've answered at least three questions about what I plan to write).
Then, why would I want to write it? The questions I answered for others were targeted to their needs and only a subset of possibilities were covered. In the self-answered post, I would go into more depth, cover various use cases and examples, maybe even show step-by-step instructions.
Does it make sense to write something like a "guide" that is broader than the usual "help me with my scenario" question? Or should self-answered Q&A follow standard Question guidelines?
