I had a discussion a couple days ago at TechEd with some people about Blogs and what information was "appropriate" for posting in blogs and we were not able to come to a unanimous conclusion so I thought I would do a post and get your opinion.
There are two trains of thought when it comes to posting links to other peoples blogs.
I am personally of the opinion that posting links to others blogs is an acceptable practice. An example… John Howard the Senior Program Manager for Hyper-V wrote a great blog How Does Basic Networking Work on Hyper-V. John is obviously smart on the topic due to his position on the product team for Hyper-V. He has great content with some incredible pictures. I was planning on doing a blog on this very topic but John did a great job so I do not need to. Since I "found" the post, I think it is better for me to post a link to it than to ASSume that my readers will find the great posting from John. It also gives me an opportunity to introduce another really good content creator to my sphere of influence. I see it as a win-win. I also believe that there should be plenty of new content as well. Please give me your thoughts (for and against reposting links to other's blogs).
I like your opinion on whats good and whats bad.
