#UsBlogs Round Up Permalink page

The following page is a permalink dedicated to rounding up contributions to #UsBlogs – blog posts from members of the #UsGuys 24/7 twitter chat community. Each week (or an adjusted schedule as necessary) I will add links to recent #UsGuys #UsBlogs



Like many great things that have evolved in the #UsGuys twitter stream and amongst the tribe, #UsBlogs was an idea germinated in discussions between a few members (Kudos to @YouTernMark & @Tommoradpour) to extend the conversation beyond the 140 and it quickly developed a life of its own. Welcome to #UsBlogs.

  • Anyone can suggest a topic – post your ideas in the #UsBlogs stream and cc me @GabyORourke
  • I will keep an eye out for all suggestions and will also keep track of the topics suggested for #UsGuysChat (if you don’t know about the chats, check here for a great post about the first #UsGuys Chat via @Mikulaja) These chats are being hosted on Mondays at 3pm EST
  • On Fridays I will pick a topic, post in the #UsBlogs stream and add to this page (see below)
  • Anyone who wishes to participate will blog over the weekend and publish anytime til Monday evening
  • No particular rules or template, no winners either – the benefit is simply to encourage conversation and great blogging beyond the 140
  • There is no requirement to blog EVERY weekend. Variety is the spice of life
  • There is no “qualification” to join our tribe or participate in #UsBlogs, except a desire to be part of a great group, and participate to our 24/7 chats with an open and positive mindset – welcome. If you want to know how to join #UsGuys, click here for instructions (:))
  • If you want to read the back story on how UsGuys came about and “what is…??”

In progress  ~ the current topic is “Fad, Failure or Future? The Rise and fall of technologies”

Join in and write a blog post. The topic is meant to be a starting point, and does not have to be limited to social media or software technology. In fact – Please do broaden it to any and all technology. Feel free to explore wherever the idea takes you.

Post and Tweet your post with a cc to me @GabyORourke and I will make sure it is collected in this Permapost round-up for all to see.
