What is this “answer your own question” jazz?

If I have some piece of knowledge I would like to share with the community, what is the best way to do so from a Stack Exchange network point of view? Obviously "asking a question" is not welcomed, as it is not a question.

    get a blog? honestly, it is really hard to put a meaningful answer to this without context. It could well be that stackoverflow simply isn't the place to put it... – Marc Gravell Aug 11 '11 at 7:39

I don't see how "Asking a Question" is not welcome - the FAQ explicitly mentions you can ask and answer your own question

It’s also perfectly fine to ask and answer your own question, as long as you pretend you’re on Jeopardy! – phrase it in the form of a question.

So, do the same. Frame it as a question. Perhaps leave comment stating you will be answering it yourself. You might get a better answer/solution than what you have thought of
