Blog addiction?

I seem to be spending far too much time reading and commenting on other peoples blogs, like tonight I really meant to go to sleep two hours ago with the regular humans.

Oh well.

Is anyone else finding the Warwick blog system a bit of an addiction? Is it becoming a barrier to getting any work done at all?

Also, I notice you blog controllers updated today/yesterday with some new types of blog entry so now we can choose to keep things among just the university types or whether to extend our entries to the whole wide world. Be interesting to see which type of entry people choose.

    Hi Daniel.

    If you weren't blogging would you be out on the streets causing trouble?

    As for the updates, it was always possible for people to restrict access in this way, but we have tried to make it more explicit. Most people were publishing their entries to the whole world, without really thinking about what that meant.

    Do you think that is a good idea?

  3. I guess that depends on what people want from warwick blogs, if its just to create a nice cosy university community and people start using their blogs to just post university only entrys then thats what we'll have.

    If it is wanted for the blogs to have a wider interest beyond the campus then obviously cutting out all the people who aren't logged in is going to cut down on readers. I guess you can never complain about giving people an informed choice though, that would just be insulting the users intelligence. Though I suspect the new prominent placing given to the university only entry may encourage most people to use that instead, from sheer laziness and some lingering suspicions that they could be stalked by some internet weirdo.

    Clearly that I have given this so much thought shows my worrying levels of blog addiction!

  4. how about a new society? "blog-addicts anonymous" – no seriously, blogs have become yet another excuse for not doing any work for me… :(
