TECHNOSIGHT » 7 Ways to Avoid Blogging Burnout

“If there is no discovery for the writer, there is none for the reader.” – Robert Frost.

Well-timed commentary for me personally, since I’ve been lax in blogging recently and have a number of posts in “churn-mode” where I think about them and write/edit a little bit at a time over days or weeks. Some really excellent thoughts from Ken.  Every single point he makes here has validity for many (most?) bloggers.
If you’re a blogger (and if you’re reading this, you probably are), go read this.



Writely notes from class

Posted in learning, web2.0 at 3:36 pm by cori

Still using Writely to keep my notes from this week’s class. I thought I had published them, but apparently hadn’t; here’s the up-to-date version.

One nice feature that I’ve noted is that you can set internal anchors to spots in the doc pretty easily. Today’s notes are here and yesterday’s, here.

I plan to ellipticise my notes about my week-long experience with Writely later.


An interesting dichotomy….

Wednesday at Inacom’s Madison education facility is apparently the day that the 3-day classes begin. My class, Developing Microsoft ASP.NET Web Applications Using Visual Studio .NET, is all men. Today the course in Photoshop 7.0 Basic Skills 1 began, completely filled with women.



ASP.NET training this week

Posted in learning, Life, RSS at 11:21 am by cori

I’m at Inacom this week taking an ASP.NET class.

One good thing to know from the first hour is that my instructor, Gentry Bieker, not only knows about RSS, but also evangelizes it and has his own blogs (http://gentryb.blogspot.com/, http://blueskiesforever.blogspot.com/, and http://courseopia.blogspot.com/). None have been updated recently, but at least he’s blogged.

My notes are being taken in Writely, and when I publish them will be here.
