3 The Viral Nature of Blogging from a posting on IBM developerworks, May 16, Behind the scenes, a small handful of technical innovators developed and deployed an internal blogging service that has grown in a period of just 18 months to just shy of 9,000 registered users spanning 65 countries, 3,097 individual blogs, 1,358 of which are considered active, with a total of 26,203 entries and comments -- all of which has been put together strictly through word-ofmouth promotion. And it's still just a pilot. Enterprise collaboration with blogs and wikis, 3/25/05 Because BlogCentral is searchable and because you can easily see the latest postings across BlogCentral as a whole, it can help you discover colleagues throughout the company with interests similar to your own, Gruen says. We ve seen people using blogs to diary their daily experiences using a new technology or building a new kind of system, monitored by others as a sort of real-time virtual apprenticeship, which lets them observe events as they unfold and see the issues that arise and how they are addressed.

4 From Dave Pollard's How to Save the World The Knowledge Process,

5 How many blogs are there? According to Technorati. According to Perseus Development Corp., 31.6 Million Hosted Blogs Growing To 53.4 Million By Year End

22 Steps taken to post an article Write article. Review. Review again. Place in Preview mode. Review. Publish. Review.

23 Issues to Consider What type of blog (content and scope)? Will you be the author, or someone else, or a team? How often will you post? Write for your audience (Enterprise is to a closed audience). Politics. Don t criticize your company or the professions of your company. Always remember the bottom line. Can you justify the weblog? Confidentiality. Tool for new employees. Encourage employees to submit ideas for articles. Look to the future. Blogging Essentials benefits, people, time, cost Is a blog the app you should choose Who are you trying to serve, and why Needs assessment Have a specific goal, review progress and assess value Who is responsible for maintenance/updating Blogs can be back-office or front and center Determine scope or niche Establishing and populating the blog(s) with content review resource options with key members of departments, practice groups or areas whom you wish to serve. Obtain stakeholder buy-in Demo the service, request suggestions, comments and input Respond quickly by adapting the blog to incorporate additional data narrow or expand content and specifications Is one blog sufficient, or do you need multiple blogs? Address usability, functionality, value for time spent Stay on message focus, focus, focus readers have limited time Verify, vet, validate content choose your source materials very carefully

24 What to Blog About? Share the Knowledge new or ongoing projects close the loop new services, or current ones that require better promotion/info dissemination KM initiatives Evaluation, design, implementation, roll-out, testing Tasks group/departmental Organizational tool, management tool Password database, subscription database, calendar of events training presentations topical/subject specific research practice development clients virtual reference, electronic services, cataloging from topics specific or broad, it is up to you! What Does Blogging Involve Got Content! Assignment: monitor, track, locate (through all avenues available fee and free) find needle in haystack and make it look easy! validate, verify, analyze review, edit, append info as req d (PDF, Word docs, Excel, graphics, audio, video) seek feedback, comments, contributions publish, disseminate, update (the updating part is the real kicker) commitment is key! don t start what you can t continue Feed the Blog! time management is essential

25 More Reasons Why You Should Blog Identify and target your users Provide channels of information Choice/selection in data stream From the general to the granular, your readers can choose if you offer them a range of content Supplementing info/data/resources from websites, e-newsletters, paid subscription services, online databases Aggregate your current publishing formats Intranet Portal Websites Handouts/brochures Power Point presentations s Newsletters Branding/marketing vehicle for your library good PR Offers tangible, ongoing documentation of work product Justify resources, staffing, additional services Where is that report, news article, survey, training manual? Promote, maximize internal collaboration, knowledge base management of resources, tasks and projects Real time publishing Direct, no intermediary req d You are the expert Blogging will focus and expand upon your skills Level the playing field minimize barriers and increase visibility, communications, integration of resources Think about products and services informing and supporting users A Product Blog "By announcing a new product on a blog you are creating an invitation to a discussion about your product. On-line press releases don't allow readers to post comments to provide feedback or to ask questions. As more and more blog readers use newsreaders, people are very apt to grab an RSS feed for a blog they find interesting. That creates an opportunity for the blog to continue the discussion that starts with a new product announcement.

26 Blogs facilitate organization of, and access to, relevant data by topics Archives: depth of coverage

27 Browse content by month/year How to Find and Monitor Relevant Blogs

33 Consider the options, value and flexibility offered by RSS Feeds Really Simple Syndication News feeds help you get the word out about updates to your blog In-house or to the public Offer your readers/community an alternative to only, or as a supplement to it for those who opt-in Review websites you use that offer feeds To locate feeds, look for the orange icon or button that says RSS, XML, Syndicate or Atom.
