Before the advent of the modern “Social Network”, many of us were already connected through tools that had much less immediate gratification. We used websites, e-mails, forums, and blogs. As social networks have grown, these older tools have only become more important, versus less important. Many social networks get us to information that we need; where the information is still found in websites, forums, and blogs.

If you aren’t already participating, there are already a few going on in the community #TSQLTuesday, #MemeMonday, and Un-SQL Friday. Watch for those for opportunities to blog without having to come up with your own topic. Beyond having a easy topic choice, they also provide a window for more people to see what you have to say.
In fact, #mememonday is today and the question is SQLCLR: Good? Or Evil?.
