Learning Rebels and the ASTD (ATD) Guest Blog: Learning through Sharing

Learning Rebels

Anyway, the last couple of weeks have had me head down writing a two part blog post for ASTD.org. A bit of a riff on the post  “ 10 Ways to Take Your Corporate University of Out Snoozeville “  If you recall at the end of the post I added a 10 for 10 – items that need to be in every L&D tool box.  I received a lot of comments about the “10 for 10″ part of the post, so I thought it would be cool to expand the thought, and I felt strongly enough about the topic to want to give it a wider audience and ATD was kind enough to accommodate. Cheers! Shannon.

What did 100 blog posts bring me?

Challenge to Learn

When I started my blog in December 2009 I was curious what it would be like to blog and I wanted to improve my English (I’m still working on that). My blog now has an average of almost a 100 views per day. The fact that you have an audience makes a big difference, it turns your blog from a diary into a publication and most important: you get feedback. But that has now shifted. I use my blog to try out ideas. The first time I used my blog for this purpose was when I became CEO of easygenerator. write posts too for easygenerators company blog.
