Long time readers from elsua.net would probably remember how at the beginning of the year I created a weblog post where I was indicating how I was getting started with a second Internet weblog around the subject of Knowledge Management, Communities, Collaboration, Social Networking, Web 2.0 and Social Software. And therefore elsua – the Knowledge Management Blog was born. Well, after seven months of regular weblogging with 140 weblog posts and over 400 e-mail subscribers (Not sure the total number of readers coming through RSS) I am very happy and excited to announced that elsua – the Knowledge Management Blog is now listed as part of the Superstar Blogs for the month of July 2006. You can find all of the different details and the listing of superstar webloggers at the following link: Superstar Blogs, where I appear on the 6th place.
This is certainly a huge achievement since I didn’t expect it to happen so soon! But the greatest thing of it all is the fact that if you look into the other different webloggers listed out there you would be able to recognise how most of them are very technical diving more into the areas of Knowledge Management tools and off I go getting my weblog listed over there when most of my main topics of discussion have been about everything but tools. There have been the odd weblog posts on different KM tools but in most cases it has just been a rundown of topics ranging with everything else that relates to KM that may not be covered by tools. And, that, indeed, is what is just so great about this particular achievement. The fact that plenty of folks out there are not just interested in KM tools per se, but they are starting to pay more attention towards everything else that is related to KM, i.e. the people, indeed! Good stuff!
Thus along these lines, I also wanted to mention some of the different weblog posts that dragged plenty of traffic over the course of the last few days and which some of you may find of interest, specially those of you who have been asking me about what’s the state of Knowledge Management inside IBM, now and for the foreseeable future. Here you have got them:
- IBM’s Knowledge Management Strategy
- IBM’s Knowledge Management Strategy Part II – Entering the Web 2.0 World
- 5 Key Steps towards Adopting Web 2.0 within the Enterprise (And its follow up 5 Key Steps towards Adopting Web 2.0 within the Enterprise – Part Deux)
With all these precious moments of celebration I do realise that the challenge is going to start from now on, which is try to keep on top of things and remain with that status of superstar weblog providing a continuous set of interesting conversations to keep up and, why not?, engage with. So if you happen to drop by elsua – the Knowledge Management Blog feel free to leave a comment or just say "Hi!". Time now to continue celebrating those precious moments I mentioned earlier on…

Hi Luis, with regards to you not being sure of the total number of readers coming through RSS:
If you redirect your existing RSS link (https://www.elsua.net/feed/) to your Feedburner link (http://feeds.feedburner.com/Elsua) then you can have Feedburner take care of all the stats for you – and existing subscribers to your RSS link will not be impacted. Feedburner has more on this at http://forums.feedburner.com/viewtopic.php?t=17.
I do that with my RSS link (http://per.lausten.dk/blog/atom.xml).
Fantastic tip, Per ! Thanks much for letting me know about it ! Actually, when I mentioned that comment I was not referring to elsua.net but to blogs.ittoolbox.com/km/elsua where I do not have much control over the RSS newsfeed since it is integrated into the actual weblogging platform with little access capabilities from my side to actually tweak it good enough.
However, with that said, and since I can access the template properly for elsua.net, I think I am going to do some further reading on the Forum link you have provided and see if I can hack it to make it all go through Feedburner. I think I would have something to play with during the weekend 😉
Thanks again, Per, for the feedback !
That was well said. Always appreciate your indepth views. Keep up the great work!
Hi John ! Thanks a lot for the comments and for dropping by! Appreciated the kind feedback and, of course, I will keep up the great work ! 😉
