BLOGthenticity - Real Business Group Blog

A group blog on business.
To engage active business bloggers in discussions over how they use blogs to aid in their business marketing plan. We want to learn from those that have effectively implemented blogs in order to engage their customers in conversations and/or provide them with information in a conversational manner within their blog. The authenticity of a business person writing about their projects, products and services is one of the new powerful tools that blogs and CMS have offered the business world.

Also read Paul Woodhouse’s post “Blog. Don’t Blag.” which aptly describes what we want this blog to be all about.

Several bloggers participate in this joint effort.

Now a second home for Anita Campbell's PowerBlog Reviews.

This would be worth looking into ...

Small Business Trends - Anita Campbell

Yes, by now you must realize that I love crawling through some links.
Gotta be careful sometimes.
But sometimes, there is just pure joy and rapture
with "Oh my, what have we here!" discoveries.

Hence, today I went from "Leadership Now" a Bnet blog.

To the Bnet blog home page where market segmentation caught my eye.

Followed the link to read Anita there.

Followed another link to read Anita here.

I promise not to find too many new discoveries in her PowerBlog Review section. Only if I'm in a real pinch. :-)

You should have plenty to read from Anita now.

You can blame me later!

Updated 4/27/05: BLOGthenticity is now a "second home" for Antia's PowerBlog Reviews.

The Occupational Adventure - Curt Rosengren

Curt is a Passion Catalyst. A contributor to Worthwhile.

An ever-unfolding mixed bag of nuts, loosely clustered around the central theme of Occupational Adventure - that is, a career that lights your fire.

I find myself referencing his writing frequently.

If you have not stopped by his blog yet, I highly recommend that you not only do so but also add him to your RSS reader or Bloglines, whatever aggregator you use.

Blog of the Robert Vall Mas [EliziR]

The blog of Robert Vall Mas is available in six different translations. Robert writes about technology, current events, football and much more.

Read the Blog of Robert Vall Mas

Or visit his Web site which features links, forums, downloads and more.

I am trying to figure out what I think of this Blog of Robert... The man obviously spends considerable more time thinking about the technical aspects of the Internet than I do.

Blahgkarma features random musings, observations, squeaks, whimpers and perhaps the ocassional rant about what, I'm not sure, but Chris Church doesn't speak for his family, his friends, his dog, the President of the United States or his employer.

I don't know if that is good or bad.

A Million Monkeys Typing - Douglas Johnston

Troy found Scared Monkeys recently. I found A Million Monkeys Typing.

No, we are not hunting for monkeys.
It is just happened that way.

One of the plus items from this site is the
Well, it’s been a busy few months, but I’m happy to announce that the D*I*Y Planner version 2.0 has finally been released.

The D*I*Y Planner is a set of free do-it-yourself templates, covers,
documentation and other gear for creating your own highly customised and tweakable paper planner system. Some

Creating Passionate Users - Kathy Sierra

Kathy Sierra is one of a group who blog on this site.

The Creating Passionate Users bloggers are all authors of bestseller Head First books ( a new brain-friendly series from O'Reilly. They're all passionate about the brain and metacognition, most especially--how the brain works and how to exploit it for better learning and memory. Oh yeah, and how to recognize when someone else (including one of us) is applying brain-based techniques to get you to do something.

I had found the MindJet blog recently and posted that here.

Kathy at ETech was working on her notes and trying to do a mindmap the hard way when she found someone using a tablet and Mindjet software and wrote about it here.

Sounds to me like a place I need to visit more frequently.

Passionate users
mind mapping
good writing

My kind of place.
And it may be yours too!

The Mindjet Blog

Yes, the Mindjet Blog. Mindjet is a software package for mapping ideas or more directly they say:
... well my point is this - I believe that there is a new important trend emerging - Information Visualization and Management - that is going to have a significant impact on the way users work with information. I am talking about an information interface or visual workplace in which users can simply capture, create, aggregate, organize, view and interact and share the information they need using the applications and data sources that are relevant to their responsibilities. The focus becomes the context of the information and not the application serving it. This will decouple the application interface from the information and free business teams to engage and collaborate using information in a far more effective (i.e creative) fashion than is now possible.

Separation of content from the medium?
What does that do to the message?
Everyone working at Mindjet can post on this blog and the conversations will be driven by what drives us: how the power of visual MindManager maps will change the way people collaborate.

They will apparently be "walking the talk".
Stay tuned in to this as it develops.
