Growing up hearing the word, community I never gave it much thought other than it’s basic definition: the neighborhood I lived in, church community, etc. Times change and the word community in today’s blogosphere, twittersphere, and facebook-o-sphere take on a whole new meaning.
These spheres can be intimidating at first, but once you settle down in a community whether it’s your career, your hobby, or you’re out to change the world, you realize rather quickly it’s simply a group of like-minded folks just like yourself.
My community? I have a few but eLearning is my profession and my passion. I started blogging a couple years ago in an attempt to stick my toe in this community. Within no time I began meeting (in the sphere) many folks who share my same passion. By the time the next conference rolled around, it was as if we were already friends and colleagues…and we just met face-to-face for the first time. I refer to this as a Spherical Encounter!
About that same time I subscribed to the eLearning Learning feed…
A community collecting and organizing the best information on the web about eLearning
Of all the feeds I subscribe to I still make time to read as many of the daily articles as I can. I like reading what others are exploring, discovering, or just their thoughts on the same things I think about.
It’s official! This post is to announce that LearnNuggets is now part of the eLearning Learning feed! A quick inquiry to Tony Karrer and he graciously accepted.
If you’re reading this but not familiar with the eLearning Learning, check out my new badge in the sidebar and add some Power to your Community! While you’re at it it, go ahead and subscribe to the NuggetHead, too!
