As you may have been able to see over at the archives I have been weblogging externally in elsua for a bit over four months and so far the experience has been very good and very enlightening. I have been able to make a whole bunch of different new connections in the KM world and engage in some very interesting conversations that have made it all worth while. By the way, now that I mention that, expect some changes on my blogroll since it has changed substantially since last time I updated it so you will be able to see what are my favourite reads at the moment.
Anyway, the main reason why I wanted to share this particular weblog post is the fact that although I did not anticipate it this particular weblog seems to be having a life of its own, because during the holiday period I got approached by Tim Ribich over at ITtoolbox who provided me with the opportunity to join the ITtoolbox community of webloggers in the area of Knowledge Management.
Of course, I just couldn’t help but accept the invitation and join such a powerful resource as ITtoolbox. I guess that if I would have had other Internet weblogs out there I may have thought about it twice since I would need to see how the timing and all would go, but since that would be my second weblog on the Internet I thought I would give it a try and see if I would be able to manage it. Thus over the last couple of days I have been doing some initial setup on the new weblog space and I am now glad to present to you my second Internet weblog adventure: elsua @ ITtoolbox.
So, right now I have got two different weblogs:
(Yes, you could say I have tried to keep things relatively simple)
I think it is going to be an interesting and exciting experience as this will be the first time that I will be weblogging on the Internet outside of my own environment, like my own hosted server and favourite weblog engine and so forth, and it is kind of intriguing how it is all going to work out. For the time being I will be exposed to, yet again, another weblogging engine. In this case, Movable Type. I have never been exposed to it so I will just have to wait and see if I can get my favourite weblogging tools (w.bloggar, Qumana, Performancing For FireFox and Flock’s weblog component) to work with it. But that will be something that you will be reading further in my new weblog: elsua: The Knowledge Management Blog.
One other thing that I wanted to mention about this announcement itself, before I will let you go, is the fact that I am still going to share some further content on elsua with the same frequency as before, if not more. Yes, indeed, just because I have got a second weblog up and running it does not mean that my personal weblog would have to suffer in the attempt of working with both. Besides, there are plenty of webloggers out there who are weblogging in multiple weblogs, so why can’t I give it a try and see how it would go, eh? Thus let’s get things started and let me welcome you to elsua at ITtoolbox where I have already started to share some content and much more that will be coming out of it as well. Yes, Knowledge Management, Collaboration, Communities of Practice and Social Networking are very extensive topics so I am sure this would be a great opportunity to expand some more further !
Oh, and just in case you miss out on this particular notice or that you may not remember after a little while I have updated the weblog template to include a link to the new weblog. So it is always easily accessible to everyone. Along with an upcoming update of my blogroll. Thus stay tuned !
