Reclaim Blogging – On Why Your Blog Still Is Your Best Personal Branding Social Tool | E L S U A ~ A KM Blog Thinking Outside The Inbox by Luis SuarezYes, it’s true that I have dumped a good number of social software tools out there on the Social Web in favour of G+ itself, or, at least, thanks to it I have reduced my involvement with those social tools quite a bit. But there are two of them that I am not ready, just yet, to kiss good-bye and move them into SNS. One of them is my Flickr account and the other one, of course, is my blog. This blog. And Hugh explains it very very well how I, too, feel about it overall on why I still think there is a place and a time for blogging out there on the Internet, as well as the Intranet, by the way. Here are a couple of noteworthy quotes from his blog entry I thought were worth while sharing across:
“The content on your blog, however, belongs to you, and you alone. People come to your online home, to hear what you have to say, not to hear what everybody else has to say. This sense of personal sovereignty is important.” [Emphasis mine]
* Your major requires a course in assembly language; i.e., you’re here against your will. * A programmer where you work quit. Most of the source code left behind was written in assembly language and you were elected to maintain it. * Your boss has the audacity to insist that you write your code in assembly against your strongest wishes. * Your programs run just a little too slow, or are a little too large and you think assembly language might help you get your project under control. * You want to understand how computers actually work. * You’re interested in learning how to write efficient code. * You want to try something new.
