Frequently Asked Questions?

I write a little blog that hardly anyone reads. More people read it now, since I've gotten more serious about updating regularly, etc., but still not very many, and I get very few comments. Whenever I encounter a blog I haven't seen before, one of the first things I look at is the FAQ page. I always figured I'd add one someday too, after, you know, I got asked some questions. Then the other day I found a blog that seemed very similar to mine (i.e. small and without a huge readership) and it had an FAQ page. And a little light bulb went on in my naive brain and I thought "Wait just one minute! Some of these people must be making these FAQ's up!"
So, are they? Is this considered normal and everyone does it and I just missed the memo? Or was I right initially to think that people do wait until they've been asked to answer?
