I remember back a few years ago being a guinea pig and starting this blog. There were quite a few people thinking I was nuts (they were right) but I knew it would be fun and a great way to connect with people and also spread information and share knowledge. Now the list of Autodesk company blogs has grown to 20 great blogs. I guess the idea was a good one and my guinea pig testing succeeded and caught on. I now also watch/read over 300 CAD related blogs and remember when the only CAD related blog feed was mine. There are some great CAD bloggers out there and even a few press people figured out that monthly or weekly news was to slow and blogging brought news up to the minute as well as places a face. I remember one member of press asking me how I got other to start blogging about Autodesk products, I told them I didn't, the people just did it. Blogging is a powerful medium and far more powerful than a few years ago when some were saying blogs, baaah they are just a fad. While bloggers are not really quote unquote journalists, in many cases they are users in the same field/industry or using the products in real working environments and provide tips and tricks that benefit many more in the CAD using community. This post is not a "toot my horn" post but one of reflection on the viral growth and spread over the years of blogging and also to mention the cool 19 other Autodesk blogs. I still need to get my list of other CAD blogs on a new page as I had far too many for my blogs sidebar.
Perhaps an unofficial Autodesk University bloggers get together is in order. We could set a time and place and all meet and mingle. I want to see if someone in Autodesk can get some ribbons for bloggers attending AU.
Oh and for fun to celebrate the 20 blogs watermark, I thought it was time to share and set free the sad/pathetic video of me being beat up by a kangaroo. After review of the film evidence, I see I did indeed deserve the whooping. I was annoying him then I tried to prevent him from escaping through a gate while visiting an animal reserve North of Sydney Australia this year.
Make sure your speakers are on as Scott Sheppard of the DWF blog provided some music in the background. Sing it Scott! ;-)
