Do Busy Readers Dig Deeper Into Our Blogs?

Do Busy Readers Dig Deeper Into Our Blogs?

What I like about this week’s challenge at Better Blog community set by Simon Thomas (Oak Innovations Blog) on Mobilize your archives is I have already done it for my Day 4 task of the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog. The task involves going back through your old posts and looking for opportunities to link to new posts mainly in the hope of driving readers deeper into your blog. As Darren says “One of the challenges that faces…

I’m on Holidays! Real life? Or Second life?

I’m on Holidays! Real life? Or Second life?

Yeah I am on holidays!!!! And have been chuckling at comments by others whether this means I will do more tweets/podcasts/blog or less.… Well maybe you will have to wait and see! But in the meantime let me introduce you to Ruby Imako! After weeks of someone (Alex) offering (nagging) to show me around Second Life I finally agreed because I actually had time! Let’s hope in the process I don’t upset our Minister of Second Life (Kathryn) as we…

Needed! Global Community Participants!

Needed! Global Community Participants!

Well todays the day! Now the countdown has begun for the presentation on social networking for NSW Learnscope. The trouble with social networking is it is really hard “to get” social networking and the incredible value of a global community helping one another unless you are “already in that space”. Most of the participants will have limited exposure to networking so my plan is to make the session interactive and model social networking with them in action — which will…

Multitasking — Embrace The Future!

Multitasking — Embrace The Future!

On Friday I decided to let the cat out of the bag on how I fit everything in and still manage to sleep by multitasking at an incredible level. Quite a few of my readers found it extremely funny and many could totally relate to it! And I ROFL when I read Kevin’s post, so we ran a multitasking competition — to see who is the greatest multitasker! But before I show you some of the entries by readers —…

Sunday Job! Road Test Some More Online Video Creators!

Sunday Job! Road Test Some More Online Video Creators!

IT’S Sunday–apparently another day of rest I thought! But No! And to make matters worse I felt that my computer had taken the day off! CogDog (Alan Levine) was nice enough to reply to yesterday’s road test of online video creators post that “There is a blurry line between the video editing tools and the ones that allow audio narrated slideshows, which are, to me, actually a bit easier to create (no video camera needed) and to edit. I just…

Job for Saturday! Road test of online video creators!

Job for Saturday! Road test of online video creators!

It’s SATURDAY! I believe it’s meant to be a day of rest but I was challenged by readers comments on my post about Animoto, an online video creator. CogDog (Alan Levine) said “But beware the slippery slope of getting wrapped in the tools- what seems more important is the craft of writing/storyboarding a story; and learning what works in visual/audio/video expressive media” Chris Betcher said “But educationally I think it’s important that kids think about how they present this sort…

How Do You Fit Everything In! DO YOU Ever Sleep?

How Do You Fit Everything In! DO YOU Ever Sleep?

Well! A common question I get asked is how do I get so much done in my day! There are some that believe I never sleep! My secret is simple….. I multi-task! Probably at a higher level than most. So I thought I would share yesterday morning with you (between 8-9 am) so you know how I multi-task… and why no-one should be this crazy. Woke up early…hubby again being noisy and this is what happened: Realised from Darren Draper’s…

What The Crap Have You Been Writing About?

What The Crap Have You Been Writing About?

This week I am writing a series on posts on the use of Web 2.0 with students for e-learning and I had promised to write about use with students today (looks like this series is going to continue into next week). But Kate reminded me that not everyone knows what Web 2.0 is! Which is really funny because I am very careful using terms like blogs, wikis and Web 2.0 since to a beginner you make them feel like you…
