“If I comment on blog posts,
then I contribute to the intellectual content of the community,
but this takes time and could be embarrassing.”
We have all heard that there is no such thing as a dumb question, and we have all heard a dumb question as well. If you feel you may have a dumb question, then just rephrase it. If your concerned about the “Deep sea fishing rights of teenagers?” you could ask, “What about teenagers?” and that may seem like a dumb question. I find that most dumb questions are really good questions, but suffer from poor abridgement. My advice is think about the context of your comment, but don’t give up on making the comment.
We need your questions, ideas, reactions, doubts and yes, even argument and rebuttals. The comments on the blog post is of much more value than the original post. Please help build this value by commenting on the posts. In our community, it’s the Conversation That’s King.
Now, where do these blogs come from? Our Integrated PM consultants, Course Designers and Instructors, Partners, Guests and Approved Bloggers all post blogs. This is an Open Community, and we want to hear from everyone. For security reasons, we do control who has access to posting a blog, but that shouldn’t constrain any members from commenting on existing blog posts.
Yes, there are some rules of etiquette that we hold everyone to, but rather than listing each expected behavior, I’d like to just say respect each other. We should be able express our thoughts without personally criticizing others. We must respect the right of others to express and even compete their thoughts and new ideas against our statements. But, never should we have to tolerate personal attacks. These will be promptly removed. If you would like to volunteer as a community Blogger, or Instructor reach out to us and we’ll get you started.
