The Selfish Blogger – A discussion :-)

Jenny Connected

Its ironic that having said that I don’t see blogs as a discussion tool…. “I I don’t see blogs as a discussion tool, for the average person like me. They might be a discussion tool for people like Tony Bates, Stephen Downes, George Siemens and others who have a well-recognized reputation and likely a lot of hits and comments on their blogs. But for people like me, my blog is not a discussion venue.”. On reflection I find blogging just a bit too distant for discussion.

The Selfish Blogger Syndrome

Jenny Connected

‘Selfish Blogger’ – This jumped out of the page of Tony Bates’ blog post. He has been bemoaning the fact that there has been little discussion around his presentation to Change MOOC – and that the discussion that there has been, has been distributed across people’s blogs and he has had to go out and find it to collate it on his blog. As an aside – I’m not sure that we could class people individually posting to their blogs as discussion.

Blogging for knowledge workers: incubating ideas


Weblogs are often discussed as a tool that supports bottom-up knowledge management. However, having a vision and installing blogging software is not enough: getting blogging to work in an organisation means helping potential bloggers to find out how weblogs might be useful for them personally and how to sustain blogging in a long-term. Information filtered by blogger networks that you belong to is likely to be relevant to you personally. Integration

What pragmatists might want to know about blogging


Uses of a weblog for conversations with self are up to an individual blogger: a weblog can serve as a tool to collect personally relevant notes and organise them in a variety of ways; this collection then provides an input for reflection and reuse. For example, it might replace email for sharing news with a team, be used for documenting one’s work to reflect on it over time, or to find out who might be the person to discuss a problem.

Blog as an edge zone


Like a few weeks ago, when the post by Jack Vinson brought back the metaphor of a weblog as a front porch from the discussions in 2004. It starts from being present as a blogger, finding and observing others; then possibly engaging in an interaction that might grow into a relation. In a case of weblogs “seeing&# is reading, made more efficient by news aggregators and various notification services that allow bloggers to keep track of interesting things happening.

Having had to screen candidates, lots of qualified and experienced people from both marketing and community perspectives – sometimes they want a brand blogger, othertimes they want a true community manager – if we start to differentiate roles, then these may help polarize things.

This is another in a series of case studies from people I interviewed in 2005 about their blogging efforts.
