Yep! One of those blogposts about blogging.
This is somewhat interesting. For some reason, I’m getting much fewer daily views on this blog but I’m getting a lot more feed views, a good proportion of which come from Google Feedfetcher. Maybe WordPress.com has changed its usage statistics to switch Feedfetcher to feeds instead of views or maybe it’s just a coincidence. But it’s fun to think about what happens with this blog.
Actually, I feel I’m getting more interaction with readers, which is what I’ve been missing. I still won’t constrain myself to writing very short blog entries, but I like what this blog is giving me, at this point.
OTOH, I have been posting just a bit more than I used to on some of my Blogger/Blogspot blogs:
- The Linguistic Anthropology collective blog about our discipline:
- My blog for our Anthropology of Music course:
- My Blogger Beta blog:
Part of the reason I blog there more is because of ease of use. Since Google is so ubiquitous, some sites make it very easy to blog an item on Blogger. I mostly tend to use bookmarklets but I’ve been trying the “BlogThis!” buttons on some services, like Flickr and DailyMotion.
Of course, none of this should get in the way of the work I have to do (which is, in fact, quite a bit). And it still doesn’t.
I’ve also spent a bit more time on Facebook. Not much (maybe an hour a week) but it does shift my online activities a bit.
All of this relates to my notion that blogging and other participatory aspects of the online world should merge. In fact, I kind of like the fact that I can insert blog feeds in Facebook and Moodle
