What types of articles/blogs do you enjoy reading on the site, and what makes you want to engage an article/author by providing comments/feedback?
For those of us who engage the platform through the creation of content, you find yourself asking the question, “what creates more engagement?”

What is it that you want to see more of, that is, the type and style of content that will make you personally engage in the conversation? And I’m not talking about the “thank you” or “interesting topic” type of responses. What say you?

Hi @Veronica,

That’s also one of my favorite topics and interests as well, that is, the activities of project managers beyond the traditional roles, which plays into your second statement, “new tendencies in project management.”

By the way, I always enjoy your contributions.
I'd say pretty much most of the articles interest me. Most particularly I like the personal experiences in PM, as opposed to the theory. It's intriguing and informative to hear how other PMs deal with common issues.

Hi @Marcus,

I also prefer the personal experience articles over ones based only on theory for my reading, and I feel the same way in the content that I create, which is why you will never see a reference or citation anywhere near my articles. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but for me, it would just feel awkward.

Have you thought about submitting an article?
@George, thank you for posting this question.
- Thought provoking questions that examine the theory against the practice.
- New and fresh ideas and perspectives
- Areas of interest that happen to hit home at the time - a situation I am going through, a challenge that I need to overcome, an experience that I have been through already

Hi @Amany,

The “fresh ideas and perspectives” that you stated is defintely at the top of the list for me as well.

I would also say – Thank you for your graciousness in the responses you provide, and of course, your ideas and perspectives, which are always insightful and empathetic.

By the way, I always enjoy your contributions.
I would say a couple things get my attention:

1) anything related to risk driven management. I see project management itself as risk driven - its purpose is to enhance benefits and mitigate risk events, and

2) a subject which I believe I can add value based on my knowledge and experience.

I try and stay away from PMI politics and PMP certification questions

Hi Peter,

Your responses are always well stated and “make one think” about the subject in a different way. I appreciate it!

George
I like replying to questions of new PMs.
I like to read posts that make me think and maybe dive deeper into topics
I enjoy seeing conflicts in opinions and also general agreements, if they happen.

I would appreciate to have a more sophisticate feedback method, not just a vote button.

Hi Thomas,

I agree with your list as well, especially the “I enjoy seeing conflicts in opinion…” It’s the conflict that creates challenge-based thought, which then helps us grow through knowledge-gained.

Maybe we should also have a new influence category called “Challenge-Based Thought,” which would make your influence scores look like the following:

- Challenge Based Thought 99
- Career Development 98
- PMO 97
:)

George,
very well put. Thanks for the feedback.

I do not feel my time is spent well if I agree.
