CCK11 Why blogging?

The responses to this question depend on whether one is a first time blogger (novice or beginner), an advanced or veteran, an expert or master blogger?

This may be a SIMPLE AND OLD question, but you may be surprised by how each of “us” would respond!

What’s next?

I have been thinking about an ambitious project: On a meta-research on Blogging – collecting and synthesizing blogs of all kinds – great blog posts from Master to Expert Bloggers and wonderful blog posts from novice to advanced bloggers.  Perhaps leaving the evaluation of such blogs to our bloggers in the blogosphere!

  3. Hi John,
    I enjoyed reading this blog. I have been way too busy lately. You have been really productive. Both of the slide share presentations provide newbies with an orientation to blogs and blogging. Stephen Downes provided information about why folks might want to get a host and he suggested several in CCK11. Newbies need this kind of information. It is late, but I will return later to read through some of your previous posts on blogging, and I will get back to you.
