Blogging is a fast way to exchange knowledge, network and build a community.
The Guardian recently asked the followers of its sustainability section for one tip on how to communicate sustainability to others. I suggested blogging, and gave the Liberated Way as an example of such a blog. This was a competition, the prize being a free place on a communications course.
My tip made the top five:
“My tip is use a blog to communicate sustainability values and ideas to people. I have started doing this through my blog at http://www.liberatedway.com”;
I think people can be too clever or intellectual in trying to share the values of sustainability with others, which can discourage rather than motivate others to adopt a sustainable attitude and activity to our planet. If humanity is to have a future on this planet then everyone has a part to play, so any tool or communication process has to be simple and inclusive to reach everyone. Blogging achieves this.
My tip is now in the voting, a process that will last only two days. If you think my tip is worth voting for, please do give me your vote. My tip is the last option, which mentions this Liberated Way blog.
