A week ago I asked for some feedback, some reasons why you read this blog. The results were very interesting and the comments kind.
Some highlights from the Other category were ‘because I’m scared not to’, ‘satisfy idle curiosity’, ‘steal ideas’, and even ‘to snigger at your self-indulgent posts and share them with others’! :-p
Many people left wonderful feedback – thanks very much for that. I’m not going to share it all here, but this in particular made me smile:
“Are some edu bloggers more interested in exposure than impact?”
Its interesting that you comment on this because it is the exact reason why I like your blog so much, the fact that you want to help comes across very clearly in most of what you write and infact inspired me to start a blog, again more for myself but definitely not for recognition. I absolutely loved the piece on ‘cc’ and your attitude towards sharing good practice. Put quite simply www.dougbelshaw.com/blog is a place to read about good practice and it has definitely helped me.
This person (it was all anonymous so I don’t know who wrote this) has hit the nail on the head. I blog not only for myself as a creative outlet, but to:
- Help and inspire others
- Get people thinking
- Share good practice
Thanks for all your comments in 2009 and I look forward to continuing the conversation in 2010!
