I’m not taking a “blog vacation,” not yet anyway. But things might be a little slow at Occam’s RazR for just a little while. I’ve been asked (and am happy) to contribute to some other sites for the time being, as well as working on blog-mentoring for many of my Red Cross friends.
- Geoff Livingston’s book “Now is Gone” comes out in October, and he has a blog that resumes the themes from the book and continues the conversation. I’ll be dropping in some thoughts about Social Media, business communications, and my own homegrown communication theory and insight. As of now, my entries at the Now is Gone blog ought to hit on Tuesdays, and I join an esteemed cast of writers: Geoff Livingston, Brian Solis, Kami Huyse, and Toby Bloomberg.
- In my role with the American Red Cross and as a blogger, I’ve been asked to contribute some disaster preparedness organization tips to the Clutter Control Freak blog. These will run throughout the month of September, which is National Preparedness Month. (Thanks to B.L. Ochman for the invite.)
- I’m also providing some online tutorials for Red Crossers who want to learn how to support our upcoming Online Disaster Newsrooms. What better way to teach the ins and outs of blogging than with a blog, eh? That’s how I learned. The first couple of lessons were distributed by e-mail to a select group – the rest are being published on my WordPress.com page which has been converted just for this use.
So – I’ll be here. Maybe not as often for a while, and certainly less often if the Gulf starts rumbling with big nasty storms. But I’ll be around.
