Today I was making the badge for my newly launched SAB -Super Abundant Blogger – award. I had just taken this photo when a couple of other regular morning beach walkers, Ros and Ivan, stopped and tried to guess what the letters stood for.
After several guesses we enlightened them. Or thought we had, but then noticed their looks of incomprehension about "bloggers", "blogs" and "blogging".
Ivan wanted to know more.
This led to Des launching into seminar mode – he can’t help himself when there is some blogging evangelism to be done, even on the beach in his board shorts – and 20 minutes or so later we continued our beach walk.
As we walked away Des said:
You heard Ivan say at first when he heard "web" that he is okay with his phone and his fax? Well, from being "okay with a phone and a fax" he went to starting to see how blogging might help with a community project he has. He asked me if I had a business card. Not right now, I said, but I’ll bring one next time. No question his interest is piqued.
Des did also tell the story of how just 3 short years ago, my eyes glazed over when he launched into seminar mode!
Blogging maybe dead for some, for others it still hasn’t been born!
How did you respond the first time you heard about blogging?
