A lot of blog posts don't cover the context behind the decision, which is like doing math problems without showing your work.

This is so true. Every year we developers come from our favourite conferences and are so geared up to completely rewrite our apps. Whether it was (or is) SOA, NoSQL, microservices, you name it, we jump the bandwagon without thinking whether we really need the technology. Just because Google/Facebook/Netflix/Spotify is doing it, doesn't mean you have to.
