Routinely.

1. I do it to raise my professional profile and it has.

2. I do it because I love to code, and I feel like contributing what I dream up to the world. I'd be coding (on my own time) anyway, so why not contribute?

3. When I do put something out there, I feel an obligation to it, so it gets matured and improved in a way code I believe only I am using never will.

I'm sure I could think of some ancillary benefits as well, given time, but those are big one for me.
