AMA: How To Start Blogging AMA with Louise Gibbs, Bruce, Chris Armstrong & Lee Marshall
Mark Twain said
“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope.
We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”
If we agree with Mark, while we don't have original ideas we have new way of doing something, Salt n Vinegar crisp's anyone? or a deep fried Mars Bar? little twists that make mine, yours and our colleagues lives better.
One of the best way to share these ideas is by blogging. Blogging can often be hard to start, continue and have the confidence to put that neat idea out there for the world to see. Tonight we will explore how to get started in Blogging and how to continue with a panel of experts from the world of testing.
So come join us, learn why its good to write things down and empty your brain to the world.
You can join the Bloggers Club on The Club for idea inspiration and get more support.
