Blogging a mail conversation

with 3 comments

Yogesh (works in Human Factors – one of the leading HCI/Usability company) asked me via mail –

can you suggst a few good sources where i can learn how blogs work? Specifically, can you point out any references/ sources showing how blogs can be used for transferring knowledge within official peer groups such as large, multinational organization (i.e. using blogs beyond personal, or entertainment purposes)?

My reply -
great question (btw : I am going to blog this conversation – is it OK?)
Some places where you will find some great resources:

  1. Common Craft – Online Community Strategies
  2. BLOGSAVVY: your professional blog consultant
  3. Corporate Blogging Blog
  4. Knowledge Jolt with Jack
  5. Business Blog Consulting
  6. http://www.blogs4business.com/

Some articles :
1. Blogs for project management
2. Measuring investment in blogging
3. Blogs to handle information overload
4. Blogging with the Boss’s Blessing

For the time being – that’s all I can dig up – more to come.

  1. Thanks for the mention, Anol! I guess I’ll have to write a little more about blogging and business now. Or have Yogesh contact me directly.

  2. Hi Anol,

    The stuff you sent across seems interesting indeed. I must confess I shrugged away blogs for long as just another form of personal websites…but I am having to relook at them in a new light because of all this information and interaction…

    Been thinking how I can leverage blogs for knowledge sharing, project mgt., etc. in my organization (it’s a rather big with many offices worldwide and people scattered all over…)

    So Jack, I look forward to your writings on business and blogging.

    One of the participants thought it would be easier to use Wiki so he started a wiki. This shows the force of networking and how people can start interact and using their knowledge together to create new ways of spreading knowledge…
