I definitely enjoy this type of read from time to time
As a programmer, it's always nice to learn about issues other people run into.
While I understand all Hoikas wrote, I definitely would not have been able to troubleshoot it
I'm glad most of the time I can work with languages that are executed by a VM of some kind and make abstraction of the CPU my code is executed on. I'm not sure I could survive without all the handholding modern languages and IDEs have spoiled me with...

Oh yeah, definitely. It's cool when an unexpected release sneaks up on you, but it's also fun and motivating to hear about others making day-to-day progress on various projects.

I like the idea of those development journals, but honestly it's a bit hard to remember (or even be aware of) all the different forums/websites/etc around here. That's probably why they aren't used more.
I myself check at different frequencies the Myst subreddit, the GoW, MOULa (until recently), OpenURU, two Facebook pages, one blog, the GoME and D'ni Jazz Club. And I still have the links to a few abandoned blogs.
Fortunately Korovev pointed out most of those support RSS which makes following all those at the same time much simpler
but information is still spread out quite thin. Just yesterday, someone was asking on Reddit what the hell Gehn Shard was, and it seems lots of people never heard about the GoW or fan-Ages.
