Blogs for conference reports

Boss sending you off to a conference? And he wants you to report on the highlights? Then set up a blog! 

You don’t have to be online during the presentation. Write your summary and comments on each presentation in something like Wordpad, and when you can connect to your blog paste the text into the postings.

Then give your boss the URL, password or invite him to view the blog depending on the blogger system you are using.
