It occurred to me that I don’t actually read blogs “for pleasure”, which is a shame, as I often hear about interesting blogs from the media which I would love to read but somehow forget about in the whirlwind of everyday living.
Yes, I do explore some eLearning blogs but I only “lurk” and explore the resources. I rarely contribute. So, whether we read blogs for work or pleasure I thought I would conduct a simple poll in a 3 pronged attack! Firstly, it would be interesting to note if anyone even responds to it which would be an indicator as to how blogs can be used to “gather information”. Secondly, I wanted to “explore” this polldaddy thing-a-me-jig to see if it works and thirdly it is a useful exercise to find out whether it is just myself who isn’t a community blogger. How many of us actually do read them? With the accessibility of 3G phones I wonder if blogs are a more inviting prospect and therefore something that more people would get involved with in the future. I remember hearing about some fascinating blogs written during the Arab Spring but I knew I would never log on late at night after the daily grind of work, commute and family committments to enjoy reading them. However, now I have my phone with internet access what a joy to be able to read a blog on the train every day! I shall find a few!
In the meantime, tell me what your favourite blogs are?
