I hope you aren’t all getting tired of hearing about the Kidlit ’08 blogging conference because here’s another post.
Zu Vincent of Through the Tollbooth talked about three important components of a group blog:
1) Passion for writing;
2) Participation using our own voice and style; and,
3) Presence: Shared presence on-line turns a monologue into a conversation.
She says that “You energize one another in a group blog.” And, “Putting your presence out there . . . you will get things happening.”
You want to vary your tone and content of the group blog so that you don’t get the “Blog Blahs”.
Listen to her for a minute.
