For those who have always seen blogs as nice but too much work I am pleased to introduce you to a new publishing platform known as a knol (nōl) — a unit of knowledge.
A knol is a free service from Google.
It is an authoritative article about a specific topic, a stand alone piece - and while it can be updated it is not a running series of posts in the way blogs are.
So from knols on Toilet Clogs to Type 1 Diabetes they came in all shapes.
You can write alone or collaborate with selected colleagues, include photos and diagrams - up to you. Then publish them to the world.
So for those aspiring to write but not able to commit to publishing a blog, this platform is your thing.
I promise to feature the first mediation knol written by a blahblah reader - just send me the details when you're done.
