I learnt to blog. Here’s the summary.
In doing that, I learnt that there’s a heck-of-a-lot of people out there who (obviously) enjoy reading blogs, but who don’t blog and who don’t comment much. I’ve had that confirmed a few times since then, while studying Google Analytics and AideRSS.
I learnt that the age-old rivals, training and education, were still as nebulously and controversially defined as ever.
I got an inkling that a lot of people who visited my blog were very interested in blogging as such. They were interested in the analysis and also the personalities depicted in blogs. My inkling was confirmed by a series of experiments that concluded in August.
I learnt that people have all sorts of wonderful ideas, models, metaphors and analogies for learning and how it’s done.
Also that month, I gathered more evidence that, in my commentsphere, there were a lot of people with strong ideas about commenting and the written and unwritten rules and regulations about that.
I learnt that there existed a whole spectrum of what people believed was necessary preparation for getting into elearning.
Coupled with that, in the same month, I found that there was a range of ideas around the blogosphere on the usefulness and effectiveness of commenting as a means for learning.
I discovered that bloggers in my commentsphere are keenly interested in the analysis of their own writing persona, even if just for fun.
I also had it confirmed what a joy it could be to blog and participate in blogging.
And it is a joy! Good will to all!
