One of the most common ways of learning about a topic these days is reading someone’s blog. If you search the Internet you’ll find millions and millions of different blogs on just about every topic you care to name. Best of all creating your own blog is quick, easy and generally free.
However, the power of blogging now transcends personal interests and can provide a real productivity bonus to businesses that understand how to harness it. If you remain unconvinced about the power of blogging then it is worth having a look at this short video featuring Seth Godin and well known management guru Tom Peters – click here.
Many smart businesses are encouraging their employees to maintain active blogs with information relevant to their jobs, business and industry. Once blogged this information becomes available to all other users and importantly, remains within the business.
Here at Correct, we utilise SharePoint’s built-in blogging capability to not only maintain blogs for staff but also generate team blogs, where all members of a team can contribute. Our staff members are encouraged to share their knowledge via their blog.
It is also important to remember that a blog is not necessarily a one way conversation, it also about people leaving comments and feedback and developing a conversation that importantly, unlike email, is available to all, now and in the future.
If you would like more information about blogging and getting started with blogging in SharePoint please do not hesitate to contact us. We are more than happy to show you what Correct is doing and the benefits it provides our business.
