When you’re blogging you primarily do the following things, research on topic you want to post about, write the post, read and respond to the comments on your post, read your friends posts and comment and respond to the comment on their post. Some people have a lot to talk about, but no one to listen to them, blogging would be a great way to express yourself and your opinion. One of the greatest things about blogging is that you can write about anything that you want and others can give their opinion whether it is good or they disagree with you. Everyone has a right to their own opinion. They didn’t create freedom of speech for everyone to just sit around and be quiet, Right? Blogging can be time consuming you have to be willing to set out at least a couple hours and if you don’t have that kind of time to be free to just blog, well you shouldn’t. You should also have good communication skills to blog, if you don’t your word won’t come out right and well it wouldn’t look good on your part. Biggest thing about blogging is getting an audience to read what you have to say, if people don’t really have a reason to read your blog then they won’t. If it has relevance in someone’s life they will probably read it. Like how to blog if people want to learn how to do something your blog will be read. Blogging about sport is really popular right now. Sports critics get online and tell you the most important things that went on at a sporting event; it can be the professional sport game or a hometown football game. If people want to know anything they can just look it up in blogs.
Do you find yourself checking your email thirty times a day to fill that driving need to be heard and to get feedback from others? This may indicate that you need more “hugs” than you are getting and you may in fact be living a delusion that you are not worthwhile without the constant contact from others. Being alone a lot can create this.
We live in a world that has diluted human contact to such an extreme that actual face to face communication at a personal level is fading into the Redshift of the universe, diluting away. One theory about the expansion of the universe states that the farther the universe spreads, the less gravity will exist to hold things together, feeding and accelerating the expansion. This may or may not prove to be true in atomic physics, but it does point an uncomfortably truthful finger at human interaction and communication.
Do you find yourself wanting to E-mail or text rather than picking up the phone and calling a friend? Text and E-mail are great because they don’t interrupt the immediate life of the one you are contacting and text is quicker to access than voice mail. But if you find you use written communication over voice every time, it might be time to question why. In the case of most, they are surrounded by people all day either at work or on campus. In that case there is likely no problem. But what if you are a stay at home mom or your job is internet based and your office is your home? If you are choosing written communication over direct contact in that situation, watch out. You may be inadvertently slipping into Redshift and floating away without realizing it.
Humans are social creatures. Direct contact with others is not only healthy, it is needed to stay that way. If you are living alone and on the computer all day, get to a coffee shop a few days a week. It will go a long ways toward re-developing those communication skills and postpone your Redshift into oblivion.
Computer networking is a system by which computers can communicate or speak to one another. Computers can, through the network, send and receive emails, instant messages, files, and other information.
The two main types of computer networking are the client to server connection and peer to peer communication. In the first instance, the client to server connection, the computer or server has the primary role as the server, where the web page data, spreadsheet files, data in the form of documents, videos and other resources are stored. All other computers in this client-server network are called clients and they receive data from the server. In the peer network, all computer have equal roles and no computer behaves as the centralized server. The client-server networking is the model most generally used.
The structure, layout or design of the client-server network is defined by its topology, like a bus, star, mesh, ring, hybrid or something else. The most common network topology is the star in which all network computers are linked with a centralized mechanism like a switch or hub. If the hub or switch fails to operate, then all the communication and connectivity among the computers will stop.
The simpler way to organize computer networking is the peer to peer system, in which two or more computers are directly connected with each other so that if there were five computers involved. With peer to peer networking, computer one would be hooked up with computer two, which would hooked up to computer three and so on. The major problem with this connection is that each computer is dependent on the other so that if computer four goes down then computer three would not be able to communicate with computer four or five and computer five would not be able to communicate with any of the other computers.
In an age where almost everything is accomplished with computers, from buying clothes to renting movies to talking with Grandma and Grandpa, there is a lot to be said about how humans use computers. Interpersonal relationships have taken on a new facet in the Digital Age. Where once co-workers gathered at the water cooler to trade news and talk, they now belong to the ‘Friends’ list on their inter-office emails and pass funny pictures back and forth. Where once kids would get together after school to play, now they sign in to Call of Duty and play with each other across a gaming network. The way that the Internet has changed human interaction is fascinating, but must be viewed with a cautious eye. While the reach of interaction has been lengthened and broadened, digital communication can also inhibit the exchange of thoughts and feelings.
Networking, whether it be at work through an enterprise private network, at school through a campus network, or just at home on your PC with your personal area network, is what makes the world go ’round. These examples of networks all represent people talking and working with each other towards a goal. A manager in India can lead and direct his team working in Panama through the use of the Internet. The Internet has truly both shrunken the world and expanded the distance between people. While the Panamanian crew may be glad to have such a good boss in India, they have probably never really met him.
It’s important to continue to have real face-to-face relationships with people, but it also is necessary to be able to work through networking relationships: talking to people over the Internet and through computers and still be able to work together and build up rapport. They both are a necessary skill and they both compliment each other: good interpersonal skills will help facilitate a better relationship with those you work with who are farther away, and on the flip side, if you can work well with a manager in India, then you can certainly get along with Ted next door.
