Day 6, 7, and 8 Lessons Combined
If there was one word that defined the online and offline social communities, it would be Connect. That true at least for the lessons I received through the last three days.
Social connection and interaction, in context of the learnings I have received, is both the origin and the destination of the content on this site. If I were to assign a term to it, it would be a progressive loop of interaction.
This is something I have said in my book, The Write Stride: A Conversation with Your Writing Self. Although a major part of the book is aimed at benefitting technical communicators, the theme (of communicating correct messages correctly) truly underpins the importance of the message in the lessons 6, 7, and 8, and remain relevant for all of us.
As I write this, here’s something noteworthy:
- In the course of time, I’ve given enough time and scope to this site. I’ve helped it mature into something worth sharing on my online social space.
- I keep reading the work of fellow bloggers.
I’ve even brought back some of them to WordPress.
- I keep sharing good content with good people. It works for me in two ways: I bring people to my content and I bring good content (both mine and otherwise) to the people around me.
But, of course, it is a continuous process, and not a one-day, one-time effort.
It takes time to build masterpieces. And, I am taking my own time with this site. You know what I mean!
