Does writing hundreds of articles about something make me an expert on it?

Does the fact that the articles I wrote before I knew anything are still sitting out there on the Internet mean anything? Will it act as a bar to others who come after me and want to do research on these topics?

I was doing research for an article today and came across a bunch of articles that were either written by me or by people exactly like me. Considering that I already know how much I know about the topic at hand, that worries me.

Maybe it should worry you too.

I wonder how much I really know about the law, roofing or addiction recovery. Anybody researching any of those topics should hope it’s more than nothing.
