Don't get blogs and RSS? You should!
I have an 'addictive' personality.... I'll admit it.....I'm addicted to Dew... I'm passionate about SBS... and blogging.. well.... I think it's obvious that I'm wacko about that too. At first when I started this blog I was like...what the heck am I going to talk about ... and it started off with just tech notes and my external web based filing cabinet. And most days it's just that.....like put a phrase in that inurl Google box like...Thanks Les - that's my post on how to clean up Exchange..... Allocated Memory.... that's all the info on my memory alerts issues... it's also sometimes my vent and rant location...but I've also tried to capture things that I'm seeing in the SBS newsgroups and communities as well.... the collective [okay... so Borg] experiences of all of us filtered through the blog.
Along the way there are folks that get blogs and those that don't...and most that don't get blogs aren't using newsaggregators for viewing them... they are googling and hitting the XML format and don't understand what they've hit.
But it's more than just that isn't it? There's a person, a voice... a conversation that begins... it's not just one person, the interaction with readers and those who contact via the contact page [that is now working again I might add] means that there is a dialog.
If you don't see what the possibility is of RSS... watch this....do you see the possibilities? And some of this isn't needing the Longhorn under the hood to do.
Starting tomorrow I'll be blogging from Vegas as I'm on my way to the AICPA Tech Conference.... hmmmm....wonder if I can find something orange to wear to showcase “I get” RSS.
For those of you who don't.... start opening up that mind to the possibilities....
