Hi Beth,
I popped over to their blog but I can't see where to leave comments at? (I did notice that they're using the same blog theme that I'm using though). :)

Networking is one of the most gratifying things. Did you see Jeremiah's post on the importance of building a network before you need it?

Some new tips from me:
1. just like some talk about making a certain # of comments on blogs, take time to meet a certain # of new people each week. Do it on your social network - for example on Facebook browse thru friends of friends & find likeminded friends. Go into Facebook groups & find friends.

2. meet people from new areas - there is also value in meeting people from new areas. It forces you to learn new things. Expanding your horizons gets you out of your niche.

3. Don't ever feel like you're limited to preconceived ideas. My blogging & interactions continue to amaze me. I'm living in rural Minnesota & yet interacting with amazing people (thought leaders, authors, technical people, vendors, etc)! So no matter the locale believe that you can make a difference & go out & do that! If you're determined then you can make a difference.

Thanks for the honourable mention, Beth.

Connie, commenting on the blog is restricted to participants on the project and mentors. If it seems to defeat the purpose of social networking, it's only because we would like the participants to find their 'net feet' first in the somewhat safe haven of the project blog.

The thing I've learned most about using Web 2.0 is that it's about being accessible, not getting access. If the message we have it one that's valuable, our voice doesn't need to be loud. Others will pass on what we said.

Look for the core of the idea when you comment. Speak with care so that the message you send is the one people receive. Meet friends by noticing people who have thoughts that intrigue you and begin by asking them to elaborate on what they said.

Share knowledge in a generous way: write about what you learned yourself and list it in little steps, so others can benefit from your experience, use it too and pass it on.
