The Selfish Blogger Syndrome

Jenny Connected

‘Selfish Blogger’ – This jumped out of the page of Tony Bates’ blog post. Tony asks: Could I have done something that would have resulted in more comments, more discussion and more integration of the discussion in this MOOC?

I should say at this point that I am a self-confessed selfish blogger and likely to remain so.

The Selfish Blogger – A discussion :-)

Weblogs are often discussed as a tool that supports bottom-up knowledge management. While blogging is personal, most of its advantages are the result being part of an ecosystem, where weblogs are connected not only by links, but also by relations between bloggers. Integration

How Fun and Creativity Can Shape Your Own Social Computing Guidelines and Policy

Facilitating adoption of weblogs in knowledge-intensive environments


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. Start by helping potential bloggers to find uses of a weblog personally meaningful for them in the long term – these are essential to sustain blogging while social effects of it emerge. To help potential bloggers with those it is necessary to address several points: Some uses of weblogs are not obvious.

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


Flexibility is a main characteristic of blogging tools: weblogs allow to “switch gears&# using them for communication on a variety of topics in a number of ways. In most cases weblogs are used as personal tools. As a tool weblogs might be also used in different modes. Publishing to a broad and often unknown audience is what weblogs are primarily known for: one can use weblog tools to make particular piece of information available to others without pushing it to them.
