Better Blogging

I've not been a very active blogger. Most of the little time I get away from work is spent catching up with other interesting blogs and websites. One of the blogs I follow is the Bamboo Project Blog. That is how I came across the 31-day Comment Challenge. The concept sounds interesting and will probably give blogging newbies like me the opportunity and the motivation to connect with the rest of the world. So, I've decided to jump in.

While reading up on this challenge, I came across the earlier one on better blogging. The tips from that challenge have now been added to my "to-do" list.

Let's see how everything turns out. The past few days at work have been relatively relaxed...the few days of transition from one project to another. So, I've been able to read up more, write more, learn more, and basically do more. I've got myself started on a number of new things. Soon, I may go back to the days of very little time for anything. But, I hope to keep this momentum going inspite of that.

And if you are part of The Comment Challenge remember to add the " comment08 " tag to your post.


  1. Hi Vinnie--I'm so glad that you're enjoying The Bamboo Project, but even more so that you're joining the conversations by blogging and joining the Comment Challenge. I've personally gotten so much from the blogging experience and do these kinds of activities--I think you'll really enjoy it! Thanks for coming on board!

  2. Hi Vinnie, and good for you for jumping in and joining the Comment Challenge. Another site that might be of interest to you if you haven't already seen it is Liz B. Davis' collective intelligence wiki, which consists of a bunch of "How 2.0 learning has shaped my experience" bios.

  3. I think many bloggers begin by watching (OK, so it is called lurking) other blogs, and then they try to find their voice as writers. This is a natural progression, and I think that a comment challenge might be one way to explore many different blogs, and gather ideas for yourself.

  4. Hi Vinnie -- Welcome to the Comment Challenge. So that all the posts generated from the Challenge come to one location we need your post to be found by technorati. Can you get you to go to Technorati and claim your blog? You need to sign up to Technorati to do this. Once you have done this when you write posts can you tag highlighted on the challenge wiki?

  5. Michele, Kevin - Thanks.
    Shelley - Thanks for that link. Looks like I have a lot of reading lined up! :)
    Sue - Thanks for the tip. I'll add the sentence from the wiki.
