Here is the first SlideBlog after my re-evaluation where I decided to post less frequent SlideBlogs and hopefully more elaborate, well constructed, more informative with greater impact. I said I would post one every month so this will be SlideBlog for April, titled Water. I will post another one in about a month, in May. Please do let me know if you think I have succeeded with my goals, as stated above. I would really love your feedback on this presentation and comments on the design. Thanks.
I have spent some time trying to figure out what I want to do with SlideBlog and have concluded that the new goal is about Slide Awareness. I hope to expand the content on SlideBlog in the near future to be a real resource for Presentations, Presentation Design and Public Speaking/Presenting.
The goal of SlideBlog is:
To create a movement of Slide Aware people by providing examples, ideas, inspiration, knowledge, and education.
I will keep my own goal for 2010 of learning a new dish every week (provided I am in my kitchen) and document it with a slideshow so you can expect to see a weekly SlideRecipe on SlideBlog. I will also continue with SlideBlog Tips & Tricks and will probably post those on Tuesdays.
As I have learned so much more about presentations I have come to understand the great power and impact a great presentation can have but also how much effort needs to be put into making a great presentation. This is why I have decided that it is too ambitious to post a SlideBlog every week as the result is typically not of the quality a presentation/slideshow deserves, so I have decided to post a SlideBlog only once a month. Hopefully this will allow me to take the necessary time to really create great slideshows to share with you. I will be posting SlideBlog on Fridays.
I hope to introduce some new categories in the near future to provide you with more resources, ideas, examples, and knowledge so you can make great presentations and become Slide Aware.
Since the inception of this blog about 6 months ago I have become increasingly familiar with the world of presentations, presentation design and public speaking. My passion for this has only grown and my respect for it has grown the same. SlideBlog started out as an experiment combining slideshows with a blog and I have been trying to post a new SlideBlog (post) every week. As I have come to learn so much more about presentations/slides I have come to realize that it is time to re-evaluate SlideBlog, its content and its purpose, so I will not be posting a new SlideBlog today.
I hope to have the new strategy for SlideBlog ironed out by next week and back with updates and information about the future of SlideBlog and what you can expect to see and get from it. I thank you for your interest in SlideBlog and hope to see you all again next week.
