One of the many benefits of social media is that it creates personal connections. As a Cisco blogger I enjoy meeting many people online, but every so often my role gives me the chance to meet interesting people face-to-face. I recently attended my first Networking Nine event titled “Blurring the Boundaries: The Future of Blogging” hosted by the San Francisco chapter of the IABC (International Association of Business Communicators). This event in particular, brought together a small group of senior communications professionals to enjoy a great dinner, fine wine and an in-depth discussion about their respective experiences on blogging.
Last week this question popped up on Twitter, so I thought it might be helpful to pull all the responses together into a concise list.These are the ones that are frequently sighted for sharing information, problems and solutions with the broader community.
I’m sure we’ve missed many people, blogs or other great sites for information, so please help us by adding more in the comments. You can follow this via a Twitter list.
NOTE: The content on the blogs listed below are not official Cisco statements or opinions, but often contains in-depth technical details and experience from live UCS deployments. Official Cisco UCS content: such as Products, Case-Studies, Documentation, Developer Community is available via Cisco.com.
Just a digression from the normal technical talk here… We finally launched the new Cisco blogs site. Woo hoo!!
Most importantly, I wanted to let you all know that the landing page and RSS feed URLs have both changed. There are HTTP redirects in place for both (which I noticed this morning caused a bunch of old RSS entries to be marked as “new” — oops), but just in case you need to know them:
- http://blogs.cisco.com/category/ciscotalk-performance/ is the new blog landing page.
- http://blogs.cisco.com/category/ciscotalk-performance/feed is the RSS feed.
You don’t need to update your bookmarks / RSS readers, but you might want to anyway just because all the cool kids are doing it.
Happy Monday and welcome to the new Cisco blogs! We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a new and improved blogging experience. Be sure to check out our new Cisco blog hub page where we highlight content from across all of our blogs.
