All entries for April 2005
April 22, 2005
Ok – just feel I need to explain my vast number of reported blog entries, when Emma Kemp only things I have four.
Firstly – my number is pushed up by having four (not two as Thor stated!) blogs:
- This one (personal one)
- Warwick Shootout (Film Festival)
- Warwick Skills Programmes (My department)
- ePortfolio (A project for Postgrads)
I also share another blog, but as I'm not the owner of it then that wouldn't come up in the figures.
Contrary to popular belief:
Nerdy Ali does loads of webby stuff thus sneakily generating loads of posts
none of my posts (as far as I know) are from the testing of autogenerated blog entries from the PDP activities that I set up in the Autumn term – they were all deleted a long time ago! So, all my Blog entries are "valid" blog entries!
So where do they all come from – different places – I'll try and explain (not that anyone will be interested…):
My personal blog, is my personal blog, therefore I have lots of private entries, some talking about FORM, some talking about plans for a PhD and some that I would prefer to keep to myself. I talked to Lisa Cooper and Melody Cobb about this at the Children of Hope concert on Wednesday and I was explaining that if was still a student I'd write more stuff on my Blog, but as I'm a member of staff I'm a bit more careful about what I say.
Also, as I work on a computer all day, plus run the Warwick Rev and National Rev websites I don't have the time to write long, thought out / fun entries for my personal Blog.
Regarding the other 3 blogs:
I use the theory that if you have a computer then you shouldn't need much paper so I run a paperless office system. I do not have a phone and I am not connected to a printer, so all my work is stored electronically. This includes meeting minutes, lists of things I need to do and thoughts I have (a bit like staff PDP ). Also, I think that the blogs are a good way of advertising certain things to staff and students so I add entries to raise the profile of Warwick Skills and Warwick Shootout.
I've had a Blog since August, so I have had longer to add entries than most people and I love blogs (especially Warwick Blogs!)
Hope that explains my blog behaviour to all – it's definitely not rigged!
