Soon two months ago, I went astray to tell a story of many inter-twined stories, in need of editing and wrapping up in my Future Book, that will be blogged here.
It was my RESPONSE to the STIMULI of a MEANINGFUL BLOG MEME with QUESTIONS THAT MATTER.
It is time to make that maxi version and mash-up of many inter-related events thrown into that long story, into the short, edited version (similar to the Dance Version with two minute intro and two minute outro with six minutes of beats and melodies signifying the tune in eight minutes you have on the dancefloor when DJing Live, and the Radio Edit in four minutes flat for Radio and MTV...).
So I will give you the Short Edit. I will begin by Copy&Paste, and meeting the Aim - 500 words or less for the full post... ;).
With some Background and On-Issue thoughts of Blogging as a Tool for Change in general, copied and re-edited, from last post, as well.
The definition of "Changeblogger" is dead simple. A Changeblogger is:
(posted in the original Britt Bravo post, "Changebloggers. Using Social Media to create Social Change").
email, I coin blogging to be one of the most simple and most
straightforward of all internet-traveling media and communication
formats. Just get you out there, share, in all transparency beyond your little mail inbox to the big, big world.
So, why not use the media in itself to transform and accelerate the
change in the McLuhan spirit of 'the medium being the message'? Now in
the days we really experience the Global Village: in order to unite and connect, in
order to create peace, in order to gain momentum of the movement
towards a Sustainable World - why not use a follow up of the original
changeblogging post, where the action creates meaning in itself, and
where the concept of changeblogging is lived and done 'being the *change* we want to see' through a blog meme? That was the initial response that fired my soul on this.
Usually blog memes are quite pointless, and just seems to be a simple way to generate traffic and reconfirm blogrolls to each other, where you get tagged with ego questions like what you had for breakfast and what you plan to do tomorrow. See the Blogging 101 chronicle on Blog Memes with a full tutorial to even create your own.
But, as the Changeblogger Meme starter Qui Diaz pointed out when launching the Changeblogger Meme (my bold);
This was the reason for my Spirit to be Ignited on this Blog Meme in the first place. And, now disciplining myself towards keeping below 500 words or less per post, which I got beyond one more time, helpless me - aiming for 350 at large future-wise, promise! - I shut up and rewrite my response in a new version, in a Radio Edit Length post :).
