Task 2: Blogging - taking the next step
Blogs are a platform to write, develop, test and share our ideas, and as an open platform, it provides the opportunity to have others comment, add to and challenge our views.
So now you have experienced the blog from the reader's point of view, it's time to take the next step and write a comment.
In order to write comments on blogs (such as on The Age website), you need to register. This is to prevent spam (software that automatically posts promotional material on blogs). So you will need an OpenID or Google account.
Write a comment below this post about your experience with or views on LinkedIn or Yammer (good or bad!) and how you may apply this in your work or professional development.
Btw: blog etiquette is that commenters often respond to something the author or another commenter has written in addition to making their own point - as in a conversation.
2.3 Subscribe - on the right of this blog post you can subscribe to this blog with your email address so you will get an email notification when I post the next set of challenges :)
Now you have completed all of the extra tasks, put a bright circle around your WEEK 1 badge :-)
