I think #ecademy bloggers are fantastic, thank you for the fun and knowledge

Blogging has been a tool on Ecademy since 2002 when Julian Bond joined us to run the site and said 'Guys you need Blogging'.

I have a subconscious habit now of checking the blogs every morning and every night and in between if I can

The random people and conversations I experience have given me so much awareness, empathy and learning

I have listed a few that come to mind, these are not meant to upset anyone I have not mentioned! In fact you can see a list of Top Bloggers here in our Stats

So tonight, I was sitting here, doing my nightly look at the Blogs and thought...

"thank you #ecademy bloggers, I really think you are awesome"


I wonder how we could thank the regular contributors more? Many of you are like Columnists in a newspaper and you serve many different functions, just like a columnist, each have their own contribution as story tellers, sages and inspirers in the community.

I love Sam Borrett for example for his 'positve, insightful' take on life - he feeds me with my spiritual energy

I love Shelley Fishel for her tips on Microsoft

I love Richard White when he shares his sales and networking tips

I love Fraser Hay for his Marketing

I love William Buist for his communication, collaboration and social media tips and thoughts

I wonder how we could celebrate the great Bloggers here more, the contribution they make is incredible.

Penny, of course as that saying I like so much goes, "the Giver Should be Thankful." Without Ecademy, and your and Thomas' efforts ( and others of course ) to keep it alive and kicking we bloggers would not have such a responsive and creative outlet. So, actually it is we who should be grateful as well as those who are not equally enamoured of the forum.

Just deleted 2 other unsolicited entries in my EA profile from ecademy blogs that obviously came in via the RSS feed linking to my ecademy blog. Is this something that can be fixed via ecademy or needs to be addressed by EA ? For your reference I'll leave this unsolicited reference to your blog up a little bit longer here >>>>> Even worse, the entry is routing to nowhere as you can see from this screenshot . . . . . . Which makes me wonder if that comes from the former version containing some typos that are not longer in your entire blog here. Thanks to the low blogging rate on ecademy presently I had not to clean more unsolicited entries from my EA profile. Thanks for taking notice.

Well Done, to Anne, Zahir & Sam ...

However, on the BlackStar Forum blogs ... I'd say that on Stats, I beat all x3 hands down ! :) :) ( rather controversial ). MILT.

Ecademy makes it very easy to blog and share stories / tips etc. Blogging is also a great way of developing your relationships that you have met at events and boardrooms. But last week the power of blogging on social networks was brought home to me with my blog on "networking lesson I learnt this week." I think between ecademy, twitter and linkedin over 100,000 people had a direct chance to read it. Several people re-tweeted it (including Penny - which was a fantastic start to the week).Then of course these tweets fed into linkedin - and they were subsequent retweeted by others. In addition, many people working from home have traditionally felt isolated - and the blogging platform goes some way to reducing that.

Hi Penny, I think if we can ALL- as you have done -embrace the qualities of the people who blog and also those with whom we come in contact, there would be far less friction all around and more joy, support and "wealth" in all its currencies. I hope that is not too obtuse for people. I am not talking about money wealth. There are many whose qualities I admire whom I know find me too optimistic about life in all its flavours. Naturally i can't help that because although we all have our"shadow," I find it better to put more attention on the brighter side of life without denying the inevitability of death, ageing and unhappiness. See, I can't even write a short response. Samx Sam Borrett Performance Coach, Trainer, Real Estate, Mentor, Lawyer, Facilitator, Life Constellations Mentoring4Change Jupiter Properties Pty. Ltd.
