Blogger Burnout

I first noticed this article from Wired magazine in George Seimen’s blog.
George comments on his own personal journey as a blogger – traversing personal journaling then personal knowledge management to simply a ‘personal space’. I expect we’re going to see more of this sort of reflection as the use of blogs matures and more defined.

  1. Notionally, since being introduced to Blogs, my veiw of formal vs Informal communication has changed dramatically – at least academically!!!! But the fear of Blogger Burn-out is holding me back….. I MUST blog…… aghhhhhhh – but I can only find time to comment in other peoples!!!!

  2. It’d be good if your comments were automatically listed on your blog wouldn’t it? Tieing the blogs together somehow.

    Comments are somehow “second class” objects in the blog world, despite them being fundamental to what most bloggers are trying to achieve…

  3. I agree Tom – this is something that I’ve yet to reconcile. The fact that comments require a second click to access can make them “invisible”. On the other hand, there is something ‘intimate’ about the discourse that can develop within a comments area (such as this one!)

  4. Yes, it’s weird. When you check your blog, if there are no comments it’s disappointing. It’s like having a conversation on your own or trying to join a conversation when no-one is listening…

    Like Tom says – is there a way to make like a main blog ‘room’ and then smaller discussion blogs or ‘rooms’ that are somehow signposted from one to the other? Kind of like a real party…

  5. “Watch this space” – Isn’t technology all about fulfilling a need in society? Maybe in a few years this will all happen if enough people want it to happen. Someone may come up with a way on how to do it? Blog pages will also record all Nick’s comments as well as others’ reponses to his comments?? I wonder…
