Alright, me and Blaze got to talking in Skype, and I had a rather interesting idea about a blogging event for this week. As a few of yall are probably all aware of, some people like to coblog. But, others I've noticed normally stay away from coblogging. I'm hoping to change that this week, so everyone, I'd like to introduce a coblogging challenge. Everyone who is interested should grab a partner and write one coblog this week.
There's not really any set subject, just pick one that plays to each other's strengths. Go a bit crazy, write about whatever you want. As for the partner themselves, you can go for friends, someone whose blogging you admire or respect, or even go for a newcomer who's just now sharpening their teeth in the blogs. The choice is yours.
"How does one write the blogs?", one might ask. The three best methods are:
A. Send conversations through GIO.
B. Send emails to each other.
C. Do it through instant messaging on Skype.
Any of these 3 have their respective strengths and weaknesses. However you may do it, make sure to keep it sustained. Also, there's the question of who posts it. There's not really a clear-cut answer, but the thing to remember is that even if you're not the one who posted the blog you'll still get your due credit.
So to recap:
1. Grab a partner.
2. Coblog within the week, using GIO, Skype, or email.
3. Post it!
After you've did all three of these, post on my profile with a link to your blog. The reasoning behind this is that I'm going to do a recap blog next Monday with commentary on my thoughts on each and every blog. The benefits of doing this are immense, whether it's brushing up on your writing skills or getting to know a fellow GIOer better. If you plan on participating, or want to put yourself out there for anyone who wants to team up, say so in the comments section below. Cheers GIO, I'm looking forward to seeing what all you come up with.
