N is for.....Networking!
This is a bit of a buzz word. We probably all do it in a professional sense when we attend training events and conferences. The last company I worked for was VERY into buzz words and acronyms. The current company is too, but in a different way, a much more genteel way, and I guess the temperament of the last company was one of the reasons I left.
In an online sense we also network. Perhaps it is less obvious and more around enjoyment than expectation from any employer or profession.
Here are a few that I take part in:
- Taking part in a Blog hop
- Blog challenges such as the A-Z April Challenge
- Facebook we can track individuals that we know and those individuals and organisations that have fan pages
- Twitter - is a personal favourite
There are others, Linkedin, Google Buzz and Delicious and I personally have little experience of them, but perhaps they are your favourites.
How do you network?
