Robert Scoble’s Tips for Getting A-Listed

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Robert Scoble’s Tips for Getting A-Listed (Via Easy Bake Weblogs.) I’m finding a lot of great blogging tips lately. Here are more I plan to integrate into my own blogging, and again I pass them on here. For students and teachers, I suspect these tips will only come into play as they get to the point where they want an audience outside of their own school community.

I’m curious. When will the first k12 A-list blogger appear?

VistaPrint Syndrome aka Stop Using Blogger : Business Blog Consulting

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

VistaPrint Syndrome aka Stop Using Blogger : Business Blog Consulting (Via Easy Bake Weblogs.) Andy Wibbels: “Using Blogger and the free Blog*Spot hosting is basically telling the rest of the world that you’re too cheap to spend a few dollars for a halfway decent blog for your business.” Not that I’m in business for myself (just yet), but this is sure making me feel good about my move to WordPress. ;) The analogy with VistaPrint is worth a quick read.

The Blog as Dissertation Literature Review?

The Blog as Dissertation Literature Review?

Can a certain type of academic blogging be a more adequate form of literature review than the traditional chapter in a dissertation? In this post, I employ the rubric proposed by Boote et al. (2005) to determine whether blogging can be considered a form of literature review. I also make some suggestions for how blogging may be incorporated formally into the research and writing activities of some doctoral students, although it certainly might not be useful to others. I am not suggesting that this single post is my literature review; I am merely providing a map that outlines how my blogging during the past years constitutes a form of ongoing literature review. (Via i d e a n t.)

This is a topic I have a great deal of interest in, and of course I found it worth passing on here (as opposed to in my FURL archive). I noted that Constance Steinkuehler used her web space as a part of her formal dissertation. Though this wasn’t exactly a blog, it got me thinking along the same lines as Ulises at ideant. I definitely need to spend more time with his detailed post, too.

I would love to hear any comments any of you may have on this topic.

This Is Not News

Didn’t know where to classify this, so it’s in my old “blogs” category. At any rate, NotNews.org referes to Educational Technology and Life, Buddhist brain sizes, and Glen Philips in the last ten posts, so what is not to like?

Blogger News Network

This entry on the Blogger News Network showed up in Google News! This means it was hand selected, by a human at Google, as a legitimate news source, a status many blogs have applied for and been denied. I presume the difference is that there are multiple contributors at the BNN.
