|10:56 pm - Blogging about lectures on blogging|
So, todays CCM lecture - well, one of them, anyway - was, of all things, a lecture about blogging.
This makes more sense when you remember that one of our assessment tasks is keeping a blog. A "Culture Blog" to be precise. (Which I really must start up. Maybe some other time when I am less tired and lazy). Which sounds in it's desciption rather like what this blog is, only somewhat less fangirly.
In any case, I spent most of the lecture feeling rather amused by things, like the lecturer pronouncing "n00bs" in this utterly hilarious manner.
It was, for the most part, stuff I already knew - I mean, what is a blog? Easy. Though, when he got into a few blogging stats, it picked up a little.
Still, there is still something deeply deeply amusing about talking about blogs - and LiveJournal got a mention or two - in one of my classes. When the fannish and Uni collide.
Also, whenever I do get around to making my CultureBlog, which will hopefully be later this week, I'll post a link to it here. And a few other regular links, so peoples can read what I post about there.
Keeping two blogs. Huh. It'll make me feel a bit like someone with a sockpuppet. But which blog is the real one, and which is the sock...
Current Mood: thoughtful
But which blog is the real one, and which is the sock...
As long as the sock is brightly coloured does it really matter?
You make a very good point.
Well, he has a CultureBlog. But it's new.
He seemed familiar with blogging as a concept, rather than an experience, which suggests that he hasn't had a lot of first hand experience.

I'm definately not one of those.
Of course you aren't, Chifey.
Erm, like "new" but with a b on the end. It would probably make more sense how weird it sounded if you heard it, especially because he put so much emphasis on it.
It sounded odd from a lecturer who tends towards rather more... academic uses of language. A bit anachronistic.
How on earth are you going to keep your inner-fannishness restrained?
