We had such a great response from the 31 Day Commenting Challenge that many people wanted to continue the fun on a less intense basis. Thus was born Web 2.0 Wednesdays, which I'm going to begin tomorrow. Here's the plan:
Each Wednesday I'm going to post a Web 2.0 activity for you to try. If you have the time and inclination to do so, then please join in. If you don't--the activity just doesn't do it for you or you're too busy with other thing or whatever--then don't worry about it. Wait until the next time. This is not, repeat NOT, something to put on your "to do" list and feel badly if you don't get to. I don't want to read any posts that say "I'm behind on the Web 2.0 Wednesday activity," because it's not meant to be that kind of thing. Seriously. This is low pressure learning.
If you do the activity, you can blog about it or not--it's up to you. If you do choose to blog the activity, save it to del.icio.us with the tag "web2.0wednesday" so we can see your post on the feed page over at the Comment Challenge wiki where I'll be setting up a Web 2.0 Wednesday page.
I'm going to try to keep the activities fun and interesting, recognizing that some will float your boat while others may leave you saying, "eh, I'll wait until next week." If you have ideas for activities, by all means let me know by dropping me an email. I suspect that as the weeks pass, this may be harder to keep up than I'm thinking right now, plus I always want to be responsive to where people are at.
Each week, feel free to put your own twist on any of the activities if they don't feel quite right to you or your situation. Then let us know what you did by leaving a comment--others might like to do it your way, too.
I think that covers it. If you have any thoughts on this, let me know. Also, if anyone wants to volunteer to come up with a logo, I'd love it! Send it my way!
The first Web 2.0 Wednesday is tomorrow, so let's see how it goes.
UPDATE--Need to give credit where it's due--apparently Jane Lowe came up with the Web 2.0 Wednesday's title, which I didn't realize when Sue Waters told me people wanted to continue with challenges, so thanks, Jane!
