25 Basic Styles of Blogging

This slideshow is a must watch for anyone blogging. I think it makes some good points. I totally agree with three points:

  1. No one wants to read a broken record. (vary your content)
  2. No one wants to write a broken record .(vary your content)
  3. Sometimes your blog posts should be easy to write.

I do want to add that commenting is a very important part of blogging as well. If you join in the conversation and be a part, people are more likely to come see what you have to say. (Goodness knows, there are enough know it alls in the world!)

  1. I have this on our wiki and for the first 15 weeks or so of school in addition to scheduled posts, the kids had to pick a topic and one of the 25 styles for their post. In the beginning there was a lot of “list” blogging : )

  2. We just stumbled upon your fine blogging post. As educators, my husband and I also blog. Schools need to start embracing technology and start running from the outdated industrial model, schools hang on to. We are in the education business and why are we the last to embrace change? If we were a “real” business we would be teetering on bankruptcy.

    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Curt and Kelly Wissink

  3. I have just stumbled upon your page and I wish to thank you for being here. I am creating an ed/politics blog and trying to use web 2.0 tools to improve communication within my association, and expose my colleagues to the potential educational uses of these new tools. I will place a link on my blog, http://haircutthouhgts.blogspot.com

  4. @frank – Yes, it is a bit oversimplified, but it is good to have a starting point so that we may go from there.

    @lisa — Yes, I think so too, or to create a wiki where we could put in our own ratings based upon fact and the actual time and number of responses and links we received. A database would be good for this, except GoogleBase and I are still having issues.

    @shaggyhill — What a great idea. I wonder, however, for a classroom, did they leave out just a plain old fiction or poetry narrative. Sometimes poetry on my own blog has drawn a lot of readers.

    @kelly – I think that is such a big issue and really, my whole blog is my thought on why we’re not embracing change. I believe that we are hiding behind some terminologies that are a little difficult to understand and also that we’ve created an educational system that thrives on stability, not change. The problem is that the kids have changed and we haven’t. Society has changed and we haven’t. There are many of us who are beginning to change and move ahead and welcome to the growing crowd of educators who are embracing that change!
