A ROUGH GUIDE TO BLOGS

Web-logs or Blogs are essentially web-sites that are generally updated frequently, entries or posts are marked by date (each post has its own web-page/web-address/URL) similar to a diary format.

Web-logs are used for various types of content, such as personal journals, journalism, newsletters, etc., can include images, audio, video

No programming knowledge is required, only minimum computer skills are needed to run a simple blog.

The real power of blogs is that you can broadcast news and messages to many people.

Great to capture daily thoughts, dilemma’s, insights, to the company or world at large for feedback …this works as a collaborative tool.

Documenting personal experiences are a key to gaining some knowledge from a person which would have otherwise stayed in their head…good for sharing implicit skills in the workplace, skills you didn’t even know you possessed.

Main problem that a blog overcomes is e-mail silos and hard drive silos. There may be information in personal e-mails and hard drives that is useful for more than one person. Also using a blog to store information or as a link storage to information is much more manageable and retrievable than current methods.

At the moment we have little islands of information, where the inhabitants don’t know where things are let alone sourcing knowledge from other islands.

The result is that blogs spore a collaborative environment where common interests are shared, idle information is tapped, and knowledge is transferred.


E-mail

Blogs complement the e-mail system.

E-mail’s strength is in one to one personal contact, and its privacy.

Blogs can be private to a company, by hiding behind a company firewall, so they are not visible to the World Wide Web, and private channels can also be accessed. Again for one to one personal contact email is more appropriate.

Problem with email is searching for stuff that is filed in a folder somewhere, you hope!
E-mail is not built to be a repository to store information; further more attachments filed away in folders take up lots of server space, especially when mail has been forwarded around resulting in many people having the same attachments.

A far more efficient solution is using a blog entry with a link to where the document (attachment) is stored.

Blogs can be searched by date, keyword, or by category (some blogs let you designate a topic/s to each entry), acting as a personal filing cabinet.

In organisations each staff member can post an entry to their own blog or group blog or project blog, that is assigned with a topic that is simultaneously syndicated to a master blog; acting as an intranet or share-drive where staff can find communal documents or links pointing to where documents are stored.

This works better than looking for attachments in an email based system, or documents stored in a folder in the share-drive.
The blogs and/or master blog can link to files kept in a document server instead of using attachments.


Reference

Blogs also act as a reference hub, as you can store: links of articles, other blogs, favourite sites, search boxes, etc. , on the sidebar of the blog.

Favourite links can also be stored in an electronic filing cabinet such as FURL, see the
ACNM library research tools archive.
These are only for web-pages; local files such as WORD, PDF, etc are coming soon!

This type of archive can be used as an alternative to our current ACNM “Drop files” or e-mail accounts, ie. some teachers supply students with a log-in to an email address where they can access materials for their studies.


Notification

To find out if there is any new content on someone’s blog you don’t necessarily have to visit the web-site. A better way is for the site to visit you when there is new content; this is handy when you subscribe to 10 or more blogs or web-sites.

To do this you need to set up a news reader or feed reader and subscribe to the feed URL of the web-site, usually visible by an orange XML button,
click here for instructions.

The beauty of RSS feeds as a publisher is that you don’t need to manage a mailing list, people can subscribe or unsubscribe with minimal fuss. The advantage for the consumer is they can pull the information to themselves rather than being pushed the information.


Collaborative

All posts or entries have a comments feature where readers can leave feedback or discussion.

Instead of leaving a comment in your blog, people may want to post an entry in their own blog, referring or linking to your entry. You can track who is talking about you by, trackback (if your blog supports it) or by entering the web-address of your particular web-log post or entry in a RSS/Blog search engine such as
Bloglines, Feedster, Technorati, Waypath, etc.

Blog conversations are not as easy to follow, but can be done.

Blogs are more about an authors insight, where discussion lists are restricted to a topic, and administered by a moderator.

Discussion lists are confined to the community of members, whereas blogs can be open to input from the public on the WWW, people are hesitant to add comments if they have to register first.

If blogs do initiate discussion, further discussion can be moved to a discussion list, such as
Quicktopic.

A typical dictionary definition of hypnosis states that it is: a state that resembles sleep but that is induced by suggestion. However, anyone who has tried hypnosis (and any self respecting hypnotist) will tell you that this is a very simplistic view of the subject!
A much better description comes from the Free Online Dictionary which states that hypnosis is: an artificially induced state of consciousness, characterised by heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction. So what does this mean and how can it be used to your advantage?
Well, the subject of hypnosis has been discussed and pondered since the late 1700s. Many explanations and theories have come and gone though science, however, has yet to supply a valid and well-established definition of how it actually happens. It's fairly unlikely that the scientific community will arrive at a definitive explanation for hypnosis in the near future either, as the untapped resources of our 'mostly' uncharted mind still remain something of a mystery.
However, the general characteristics of hypnosis are well documented. It is a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, deep relaxation and heightened imaginative functioning. It's not really like sleep at all, because the subject is alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling you get when you watch a movie or read a captivating book. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the outside world. Your focus is concentrated intensely on the mental processes you are experiencing - if movies didn't provide such disassociation with everyday life and put a person in a very receptive state then they would not be as popular (nor would TV advertising be as effective!). Have you ever stated that a film wasn't great because you just couldn't 'get into it'???
This works very simply; while daydream or watching a movie, an imaginary world becomes almost real to you because it fully engages your emotional responses. Such mental pursuits will on most occasions cause real emotional responses such as fear, sadness or happiness (have you ever cried at a sad movie, felt excited by a future event not yet taken place or shivered at the thought of your worst fear?).
It is widely accepted that these states are all forms of self-hypnosis. If you take this view you can easily see that you go into and out of mild hypnotic states on a daily basis - when driving home from work, washing the dishes, or even listening to a boring conversation. Although these situations produce a mental state that is very receptive to suggestion the most powerful time for self-change occurs in the trance state brought on by intentional relaxation and focusing exercises. This deep hypnosis is often compared to the relaxed mental state between wakefulness and sleep.
In this mental state, people feel uninhibited and relaxed and they release all worries and doubts that normally occupy their mind. A similar experience occurs while you are daydreaming or watching the TV. You become so involved in the onscreen antics that worries and everyday cares fade away, until all you're focused on is the TV. In this state, you are also highly suggestible. That is why when a hypnotist tells you do something under trance; you'll probably embrace the idea completely. However, your sense of safety and morality remain entrenched throughout the experience and should either of these be threatened you immediately wake!
A hypnotist can not get you to do anything you don't want to do.
So while in such a state, when we are highly suggestible and open to new beliefs, a skillful hypnotist, whether in person or via a recording, can alter life-long behaviours and even give us new ones! personal-development.info

According to recent news, the erectile dysfunction afflicted elderly people in Brazil were administered with free viagra and as a consequence they were miraculously cured of impotency. Doesn’t this news appear utterly surprising to you? But the man who is well aware of all the information on cheap viagra would never be surprised on hearing the news that the distribution of free viagra among the elderly Brazilian people suffering from sexual dysfunction has cured them of the deadly malady. But if you are not so fortunate to get hold of free Viagra, then you can buy viagra from an authentic source and cure your erectile dysfunction. The need of the hour is to browse through Viagra online, procure Viagra and treat your erectile dysfunction. But before you buy viagra online, it is necessary to consult the physician on your erectile dysfunction and take his necessary recommendations to treat the disease.
