Blog on blogs

Dr Peter Kawalek, Senior Lecturer and all-round Good Person at MBS, is going to write a paper on action research he plans to conduct into weblogs. Here’s what I mentioned; any thoughts?

Going through my blog archives, a funny pattern emerges. I get the most comments (directly reflecting interest) on those topics where I manage to say something scandalous, controversial, or personal to my friends. If I just write what happened to me that day, interest seems to be zero.

So a canny blogger is one who makes his/her audience react. Reasons for wanting to be react are not uni-dimensional; perhaps the commentee wants to show off, perhaps commenting on your blog is prestigious, perhaps the topic demands reaction, etc.

  1. His blog on blogs will be the blog of blog! I am looking forward to it!

  2. Hello Kamikazenaz, thank u for leaving a message on my webspace.
    You wrote “hey there N, seems like you’ve been looking no further than msn for good blogs. You must realise there’s more out there??”
    Well yeah I know there are good blogs outside of msn spaces but I don’t really know how to find them. I only managed to find the ones on my list so far because either the owners visited mine or their’s was linked to ‘recently updated’. I can’t be bothered to just sit there and search for a decent blog on google you know! It would take ages. As you seem to be knowledgeable in all things blog perhaps you could reccommend me some reads? Ta luv x
