Huddle Allowing People To Collaborate Online

I love the English language because some words have so many meanings it can confuse the crap out of anyone trying to learn English. There are words that sound the same but mean something entirely different. One example that comes to mind are the words threw and through.

There are also many words that can have several meanings, one that comes to mind is huddle. A huddle can be a person who draws themselves into a crouch or it can be a group of people that crowd closely together. In sports a huddle is when the coach or captain of the team gathers them all together for a pep talk or to discuss strategy. I’ve chosen a nice image to illustrate this type of huddle. The reason I chose this picture should be quite evident to those who know me. :devil_tb:

But I didn’t get you here just to look at a lovely huddle of nice butts. No sirree, I got you here to introduce you to an online huddle, one that many of you will find quite useful.

This particular Huddle is an online site that gives you “simple, secure online work spaces containing powerful project and collaboration tools. Huddle is hosted, there’s no software to download and it’s free to get started.” Yep, you can do it all online with not a thing to download to your computer.

Huddle will allow you to;

  • Manage your projects
  • Share and store files online
  • Create and edit documents online
  • Allow you to have group discussions
  • Allows you to invite as many users as you need

A London based company it’s used by thousands of users including major companies such as Panasonic, Kia Motors, Nokia, P&G and even major charities such as UNICEF. The main advantage of Huddle is that it allows groups of people to brainstorm online, thereby allowing them to work effectively over vast distances.

So, if you have ever had the need to share a file, to manage your calendar or any of your many daily tasks then Huddle is for you. If you have the need to get a group of people that reside in far off parts of the country or even the world you will find that Huddle will help you out, and don’t forget that because it is completely web based there is absolutely nothing to install.

Naturally, the best way to test to see if it will do all that I say it does is to take it for a spin, and now would be the ideal time to give it a try as they are offering a month’s free trial, just click on the following link. Huddle Accounts – 1 Month Free Trial!

One last thing, in addition to Huddle’s Iphone app, they’re also the official collaboration application for well know social networks such as LinkedIn.com, Ning.com, Xing.com and Facebook.com. Just thought I should mention that before I forgot.

Once you’ve taken it for a spin I would love if you would take the time to come back and let the rest of us know exactly what you thought of it.

Taking The Time To Think Before Clicking Submit

I think there is a time in everyone’s lives when you regret having said something. This could be because you were angry or because you were so caught up in the excitement of the moment that you let something slip out that was better left unsaid.

While this is true in the real world it should never happen in the online world because when online you have the time to step back from any given situation before writing a post, commenting on another bloggers post or even when replying to a comment left on your blog. The repercussions of not doing this can be seen on my In Defence Of A Bloggers Right To Review A Product where the blogger concerned did a lot of damage to his reputation, so much so that many people said they would never deal with him again.

I would like for you to take a moment from your busy schedule to watch this video as  it highlights the point I am trying to make. This video clip shows how not taking the time to think before speaking can lead to some very dire consequences.

Cool huh? So let that be a warning to you as you float around the blogosphere, think twice, or even three times before clicking on the submit button, because once you’ve done that it very hard to take it back.

Even though I have an ‘About‘ Page I reckon there would be a fair few people who have never bothered to look at it and so they wouldn’t know that apart from some other blogs I also have two photo blogs, Scenic Adelaide and Photo2Blog as well as  Top Sexual Aids blog which is just starting to pick up steam. This post has nothing to do with SEX, I just thought I would give it a little plug, and all to do with the right things to do with a photo blog.

I’ve seen a fair few photo blogs that have some fantastic photos but very little traffic and there is a very good reason for this. All the blogger has done is paste the photo with little or no dialogue to support it. One thing you have to remember is that the Googlebots don’t have an eye for photos at all, so unless you write something about the photo they’re never going to find it.

Let’s take the following example;

waterfallgully

It’s a nice enough photo but those damn Googlebots aren’t going to pick it up at all so it will never get indexed unless you write something about it. Googlebots aside you really should give your visitors some information about the photo as they more than likely want to know something about it.

That particular waterfall is known as First Falls and it can be found at Waterfall Gully which is a suburb of Burnside. The falls itself is part of the Cleland Conservation Park and is about 15-20 mins from where I live.

It really is a lovely spot, one where you can take long walks along the tracks or even stop in for a bite to eat at the Waterfall Gully Restaurant which is only metres away from the falls itself.

Unfortunately it’s not open all the time. Last I looked it’s open Thursday to Monday 11.00am – 5.30pm and Friday evenings but bookings on that night is essential.

Of the two Photo Blogs Scenic Adelaide gets a hell of a lot more search engine traffic and that’s probably because the subject matter involves places of interests rather than photos of flowers and stuff. As can be seen from Cool Blog Links it rates in the top 10 blogs.

Speaking of Cool Blog Links, Google has seen fit to give it a PR3 on the last PR update so if your the kind who’s interested in increasing your PR you may even consider joining and get some of that link juice.

Sorry about that, I got a little sidetracked with some self promotion :innocent1_tb: Let’s get back to the photos shall we. I know that there are some of you who are thinking that you’re wrotten photographers, well guess what, so am I. The thing is today’s digital point and shoot cameras are so good it’s not all that hard to take a good photo. That and the fact that you can take virtually hundreds of photos using different angles and perspectives means that your bound to get a few really good shots.

The fact that you can post it straight onto you blog means that there aren’t any development costs. Another thing to remember is that every photo can be a story unto itself and so they can make great filler posts when you’re stuck for something to write.
