This is my first attempt at live blogging, and on someone else’s laptop, which is always tricky. As a newbie blogger, I find it all quite exciting. You can see pictures over on Lisa Risager’s blog. There is no specific agenda. People are just chatting with old friends. Others have put sticky notes on their laptops to indicate what topics interest them. It’s great to walk around and read these topics. Someone is converting from another system to WordPress, but I can’t help there, so I move on. I met two newbies who suddenly made me feel experienced with my two-month-old blog. I could even show one of them something about themes, which made me feel that I was finally a contributor, and not just a taker. What have I learned?

The STC UK chapter is holding a one-day conference about wikis and blogs on Saturday, March 10th in Birmingham. Because I won’t be able to attend, I look forward to reading about it in a blog or hearing about it in a podcast.
It is not very long ago that I blogged about Darren Barefoot’s blogging survey. Now there is a survey about technical communication blogs over at the STC Suncoast chapter site. Try it out, but you must hurry. It opened February 10th, and it is only open for a week.
