12 years – and still going (just!)

So, 12 years, (and a few days) ago, I wrote my first post on here. Originally, it wasn’t here, but on Blogspot; I’ve moved it a few times, and at times it’s been more active than others. Skimming through the archives, I was particularly active in November 2007 , but there are too many months…

Blogging, and other tools generally…

I’ve started looking through various bookmarked pages; an interesting co-incidence that when I thought I’d try to look at a range of aspects of Blogging in HE, I found that WordPress now offers the ability to use an online creator at WordPress.com to write for a self hosted blog. Not sure I’d bother in the…

Twitter – wordle.

Though I’ve done far more in Twitter than I have here, my Wordle is very similar to the one I created in January! I’m not sure how to get the rt out; given that I created it via Tweetstats ( rather than directly as I had in the past)…

Twitter vs. Facebook.

A chance comment by Rosie Sherry on Twitter caused me to think about the differences between the two. Her point was that it’s easier to keep up with people in Facebook – which I’d agree with, but, I see that as a benefit of having two accounts. When I first used Facebook, I couldn’t quite…

Tweetdeck

RWW reports that Tweetdeck has allegedly been bought by Twitter. Nothing has been confirmed yet – but if so, then RWW’s feeling that it’s likely that support for other networks will remain is probably true. (Not that I’ve ever actually used Tweetdeck for anything other than a single twitter a/c; but it’s nice to know…

Twitter … or why I've not been blogging

It’s fairly clear from the Wordle that I’ve just posted, that I’m using twitter more and more at the moment, so, following the suggestion from Ginerva,, I thought I’d have a go at creating it. Tweetstats gave me some useful stats, and here’s the wordle (which you can now create straight from Tweetstats):…

Uni's Closed – but how did you know.

Following a post from Brian Kelly, I started thinking about how University of Portsmouth let students/staff know that it was closed today. We had a number of sources: Twitter: @portsmouthuni @portsmouthsu @uoplibrary Websites One on the Uni site & one on the Student Union Site Email … though there only seemed to be an all…

ALT-C 2009

One of the issues that cropped up at ALT-C was “blog or twitter”. There’s an ongoing debate re. whether or not Twitter is killing blogging. I’m guilty of that – very much so! Just look at the twitter stats– and my frequency of recent postings on here. This started off really as a small discussion…

Who's following who?

I’ve read a few posts recently in the blogosphere (such as this one by Mike Arsenault) about “twitter snobs” – and basically whether one should, or shouldn’t, automatically follow everyone who follows you. As with so many things, some people will argue vehemently that their way is “right”; others will be more pragmatic – explaining…
