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.

The Selfish Blogger – A discussion :-)

Jenny Connected

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.”. there has actually been some discussion about The Selfish Blogger Syndrome, which I would like to respond to with this post. I just don’t want to push myself on people.

Facilitating adoption of weblogs in knowledge-intensive environments


From an organisational perspective, weblogs provide a people-driven way to share knowledge and to develop ideas. Bloggers might use their weblogs to document their experiences and lessons learnt – those that escape official reports, but are usually very useful for others to learn from. Weblogs support serendipity – finding ideas that fuel innovation and interesting people to talk to or to combine efforts for a shared goal.

Blogs as boundary objects


While blogging might provide a window onto practices of the blogger, on a surface weblog is just an artefact: text, links and bits of other media. Publishing makes one’s weblog traces exposed, so others can learn from them without necessarily engaging directly with the blogger.

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. When topics and people for conversation are known it is better to choose other tools, however, blogging works well as a conversation starter since others could choose topics that interest them.

Stories to TEL: Learning in networks and in communities of practice

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Without tracing the complex history of learning in social networks, one can safely say that all of it is rooted in the pioneering work on social learning done by such people as Alfred Bandura and, later on, Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger. Lave and Wenger, also in their later work, stress the importance of strong links between the people that participate in a community of practice. So people do learn in communities of practice, if only to improve and fine-tune their existing knowledge.
