Chris Brogan asked me today “How are you using your blogging?” (Ok, so to be honest, he didn’t ask me personally. He wrote a blog post with this question, and I happened to read it. But I took the question personally, as if he had asked me, personally.)
And I had to stop and think about that question. I am not entirely sure!
- I think I am using it, in some cases, to extend my mentoring and teaching practice.
- I think I am using it, in some cases, to reach out to potential students/colleagues/friends.
- I think I am using it, in some cases, to share information and my perspectives on that information.
- And I think I am using it, in some cases, to share a bit of myself (with whomever cares enough to read my drivel).
Speaking of blogging and wondering why I do it, I ran across this quote about blogging — from the famous Mr. Anonymous:
A blog is merely a tool that lets you do anything from change the world to share your shopping list.
AND – here are 50 more quotes from non-anonymous people about blogging that I’ve been thinking about.
