2021 PROMO: Plan for organizing a blog in a digital "world". One person, publishing once a month, will get no following in years. But a collaborative blog...


Plan for organizing a blog in a digital "world". 
One person, publishing once a month, 
will get no following in years.  
But a collaborative blog...
Suggestions as to how and why a community or professionally-oriented class might want to develop a collaborative blog that reports on what they are doing.



  • Twenty people, publishing once a month on related topics, can build a following.
  • That is the potential of a collaborative blog/

Where would you get 20 people?

  • In a community.  People in a community share common interests.
  • In a professionally-oriented class. They all share professional interests. 

Why blog?

A meeting with Charlie the Chatter.  
A draft model for a welcome bot in a virtual world. 
The tale of the chatter dog.
An episode in the life of Charlie, the apprentice bot dog.
An important sign

I knew right away I was in over my head.  This was a three-dimensional world inside the computer.  Or down the rabbit hole.  "What do I do next?", I asked myself.

Then I noticed a big, shaggy dog trotting towards me.  It wore a sign saying "Look for the chat window, lower left."  It stopped, sat up and wagged its tail."
