This session was really great. It was filled with tons of current bloggers, future bloggers, and those that read what we have to write. I really had a good time discussing the ins and outs of blogging with everyone. It was also cool to realize that half the people there were from other countries. You start to forget about us being all over, and that’s a good thing. The fact that we are all part of a community that doesn’t really know, nor adhere, to geographical boundaries is amazing.
There were also no less than 12 IBM employees there. It’s nice to see a committment to the community from IBM. The fact that there were blogging sessions, a blogging BOF, and an OpenNTF.org booth prove this.
So here’s the challenge to you as a reader. Let’s continue to grow this community. If you can, try to comment on other’s blogs more often. If you are a member of a user group, let them know all about blogs and how they work. If you have simply been lurking, grab one of the templates and add your voice.
In our room was a bunch of VERY diverse people, all with different styles, skillsets, and content. No matter what you’re into, now is the time to add your voice. Let’s prove that Radicati is dead wrong!
