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

Example of a blog used for development, collaboration, testing

Blogs facilitate organization of, and access to, relevant data by topics

Example of a very focused topical blog: GM Smallblock Engine Blog

Example of a topical blog with broader focus but still subject oriented – stays on message.

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. “ http:// contentcentricblog . typepad .com/

Consider the options, value and flexibility offered by RSS Feeds 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 email 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.
