Here are the 7 topics that Andrew has challenged us to write about.
Starting Saturday I will write one blog post a day, each with 300 to 400 words about:
- What the purpose of my website is, who I am and why my blog is unique.
- Answer one question I think people visiting my blog may have.
- Write a blog post on the same topic as one my most popular posts.
- Share a photo I took this week and tell you about it.
- Embed a legal YouTube clip that I either found today or created myself. Then tell everyone about the clip and related information.
- Create a blog post on a subject I’ve never blogged about here before.
- Share hints or details of what I intend to write about in the future.
This experiment promises to be an interesting diversion for the norm and I do hope I can think of some useful and interesting items for you on each of these topics.
One of the opportunities this challenge presents to me is the requirement to write a piece every day and to make it a specific length. As those who read this blog would know, my posts tend to be of a technical nature and I haven’t thought about the length of each article or have a set time that I must post. I write when I think of something deserving of a post and as long as I need to properly explain each topic. I also tend to use the articles as a permanent knowledge base on items I get asked rather than the typical “web log” style of most blogs.
The general aim of this site is to help ACT! users, resellers and consultants get the most from the product. Unlike other ACT! related blogs, I have tried not to simply create content of a marketing or promotional nature. I love ACT! and have have dedicated the past 23 years to the product – but I also experience many of the frustrations that users feel when certain functions don’t operate as well as they should or where the Product Management and development teams have missed the mark and I try to warn users of these also. Hopefully, this “warts and all” approach helps us all use ACT! better and encourages Sage to continue to improve it.
Now that I’ve completed Part 1, I need to think of a question you might have for Part 2.
Any suggestions you might add to the comments area would be most welcome.
