To Blog ……. or not to Blog⤴

from @ eCurriculum Blog

You'd think having had a comment on my last posting in early March (thanks Joe), the third one ever, I should have approached my Blog with renewed enthusiasm. Someone out there is reading it! Yes you'd think so - however I seemed to have run out of steam there for a little while. I have, to be fair, been really busy particularly with the Collaborative Course Design Pilot we are running from the RSC right now and also working with colleagues designing another pilot project aimed at progressing the use of e-Assessment. But having said that I have allowed my Blog to slip down my list of priorities and I need to get back on track with it.

So I've coined a new phrase - Blog Fatigue! - well I thought I had however on closer inspection I discover that there is much written about this new phenomenon - so there you are Mrs Smug!

“Blog fatigue” is a common subject - and it's said that pretty much everyone comes down with it at one point or another. (see Jason Kaneshiro's blog about it). He suggests that it's routine that leads to it, something I was actually determined to keep to - hence the Friday Blog. No, no, no ..... he says "mix it up" to avoid BB (Blog Burnout.)

Another strategy suggested is to craft 52 one for each week and post date their publication - a bit too mercenary for me. I rather like to think that I provide an informative, responsive and up to date service - hmmmm.

I prefer Jason's solution so beware! I'm going to Blog as the inspiration takes me and it could be on any day of the week! In fact it's Wednesday today if I'm not mistaken.

Blog Fatigue: Is it fatal to your Blog ?

Suzanne senses Blog Fatigue - do you ?
