General: Identify Useful Learning Resources
Let's collaboratively build a library of resources for this group. I know that I spend a lot of time procrastinating by looking at productivity blogs and writing sites, when it would be easier to just sit and write!
Let's share those links and use them to identify tasks that we can work on.
There are some links added already to the External Links section, but it may be more productive to we use this task area to organise links by category. My category ideas are:
- http://dailypost.wordpress.com/ "an experiment in blogging motivation"
- http://basicblogtips.com/ Various tips on blogging.
- http://www.problogger.net/31-days-to-build-a-better-blog/ A 31 day workshop by Darren Rowse, ProBlogger
- http://buzz.blogger.com/2011/09/tips-for-new-bloggers.html A quick blog of note from someone who knows
