Why do so many people want to post blogs?

August 14th, 2009

The primary reason is that they have something to say. Some may say it better than others. Some may want to show how smart they are. The best posts however come from those few that really care and are passionate about the subject matter they choose to post about.

This author tends to think of the large Supply Chain blog sphere we are part of as a round table discussion that everyone can attend whenever they want to at no cost. That’s free education for those that choose to use it. The good news is that the more individuals that post on a subject the more exposure the subject matter gets and the greater the opportunity for an ?Oh My Moment? to occur. Quite often, blogs are subsets of a broader subject area. By example, the broad subject area of “Supply Chain” might include posts that cover any of the following areas.

1. Supply Chain Management
2. Warehouse Management
3. Procurement
4. Logistics
5. Manufacturing
6. Global Trade
7. Software Providers
8. Vendor Management
9. Supplier Management
10. Value Chain
11. Inventory Management
12. Distribution
13. Demand Planning
14. Materials Management
15. Raw Materials

Obviously, each of the above subsets of the broader subject of Supply Chain also has many potential subsets that can also be posted about. What normally happens is that an author chooses to post about areas that they are passionate about. For this author some but certainly not all of those areas might include.

1. Environmental Best Practices
2. Product Safety and Standards
3. Supply Chain Traceability
4. Food safety and Food Borne Illnesses
5. e- Negotiation
6. Supplier Data Availability
7. Procurement Professional Collaboration Points
8. Procurement Content Access
9. Corporate Social Responsibility
10. Retail Procurement
11. Profit improvement through Improved Procurement Practices
