“Blog It Forward is a new and exciting blogging challenge on SCN. One blog will start a journey where you’ll get to know other SCN members like never before. We will read about their dreams, ambitions and what fascinates in the world of SAP. The Blog It Forward Chain will list all the blogs of the people who joined the challenge. There is only one thing that is essential for this to happen and that is you πŸ™‚ .

You might have seen the “Pay it Forward” movie, where one kid starts a good deeds chain that impacts thousands of people in his community. Well, I believe that our “Blog It Forward” challenge can be the cyber version of the movie concept.

I will kick off the challenge by posting the first “Blog It Forward” (BIF) blog. I wrote this blog according to the template and guidelines provided below. The people that I will “Blog It Forward” to will pass the baton to their fellow community members (friends, colleagues, etc.). Their friends and their friends’ friends will do the same. This will create an amazing international web of people, stories and interesting perspectives of SAP topics.

Below you will find additional instructions and information on how to engage in the “Blog It Forward” Challenge. Feel free to be creative and innovative when you post. Any registered SCN member that was blogged forward to can join this challenge, even if she or he hasn’t blogged before.

    Great idea Moshe and thanks for getting this started!  Sounds like we already have a lot of folks picking up the banner.  Well done!

    I have a suggestion.  Everyone should tweet links to the BlogItForward blogs as well and use a hashtag so we can follow the conversation.  How about hashtag #BlogItForward.  I’ve already used it on my first tweet about the topic.

    @ChipRodgers: Join us! >> Blog It Forward Community Challenge bit.ly/RA6uEl #SCN via @SAPCommNet #BlogItForward

    Have fun everyone!

          Hi Chris,

          You see how friendly are the BIFers:)! Thanks a lot Zim and Tammy for this warm welcoming.

          Anyone who has an SCN account (and anyone can register) can join #BlogItForward. Because I’m preparing a BIF family tree it is best that people join by request/forward. If you wish to join and no one tagged you already you could request to join in this list . Then someone will Blog It Forward to you. This way we will also get to know each other better.

          But as you were tagged (twice:))  you are more then welcome to join Blog It Forward and I’m looking forward to reading your BIF.

          Thanks again,

          Moshe

      Hi Harish!

      I apologize for the delay, I was on vacation. A part of the Game’s rule is to ask for permission before BIFing to someone. So this way he is aware of that. People also use the @ before the person’s name so he gets a notification.

      To request to join the Challenge please click here.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    liked bookmarked

    its such a novel idea. would love to implement this in every social space – not just scn. it helps bring the person back into the ‘uptight’ ‘all work no play’ environment (that exists in a lot of organizations). waiting to bif.

      Hi Satish Kumar Balasubramanian,

      regarding your above queries:

      · Mention by whom you were blogged forward by and link to his BIF blog

      since i have mentioned your name in my BIF so you can mention my name in that.

      e.g. select underlined text (BIF :as above), click on Insert link option, paste respective person’s BIF URL.

      for mentioning person’s name, you just visit his scn profile page, copy the URL and paste as i mentioned.

      I was challenged in Blogged It Forward by my friend Jitendra Kansal in his BIF.

      how can i add the BIF tag to My blog???

      you can paste this line:

      If you wish to Join #BIF challenge and you haven’t been tagged yet. Please list your details here. Someone will blog it forward to you .


      Let me know if you still not clear.


      Rgrds,

      Jitendra

                    Natalia got it quite close after posting her comment here. There is no automatism, it is a manual upload, probably done just once a week, and may be influenced and delayed by vacation time and other important activities.
