Social Media, such as Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. are connecting people and makes the world smaller. To me as an extensive networker, these are important tools professionally as well as personally to collaborate, find resources, make friends and share knowledge. Some say we should teach the worlds leaders and politicians how to blog. I don’t know if that’s a good idea – I mean at least some of them have made enough of a mess of things already. I would say we, the people, we bloggers should do it: Proving that blogging empowers us to make a better world. Each of ours posts are small steps, but when hundreds – thousands – say millions, move in the same direction; who could stop us? – For the very best course!

Make Blogs – Not Wars:
So what has Peace to do with Blogging? To me it’s simple: Peace: Is something the world achieves by understanding each other in mutual trust and equality. Uncertainties develop scepticism and fear, while knowledge makes sense, openness, acceptance and leads to dialogue. The more we know about each other, the smaller the world becomes. That’s why I say: Make Blogs – Nor Wars, as it breaks down cultural, religious and other barriers.

Oslo Blog Gathering:
You now know how I think about meeting and collaborating in the Blogsphere. Based on my positive experiences of almost five years, it has inspired me to take it to a new diminution; to meet in real life too. So in August 2010, RennyBA’s Terella invites you all to a Blog Gathering in Oslo to expand our friendship, learn more from each other and to give you a personal taste of Norway’s culture, traditions and habits:
