Where's the Hottest News for Employees?
Try Technorati.com! Never heard of it? Well, some web site tech experts decided that blogging was so hot and here to stay, they decided to create a web site where anyone could go and discover the hottest topics in the blogisphere. Do you know what this means? It means whatever is "topical" in the news or in society, probably has someone who knows a lot about it "blogging" daily, or a couple times a week on that subject. These experts are often the brightest folks on the planet. You always get a chance to see who they are on their blog, but doing so will give you confidence that what their are saying is credible. When you visit www.technorati.com you can search on any topic and instantly discover who is blogging about it. For example, if you want stress tips for employees, try plugging it in, and then see what comes up. Then visit that blog and ask that blogger for permission to use something you find worthwhile. Of course, as I have mentioned before, you can always use the subject matter to trigger your own thoughts, expertise, or experience that can allow you to compose copy that is original, but includes the ideas of the article. Remember, ideas can't be copyrighted.
