Hi to my fellow EDU8117 travellers,
Following along from David’s “learning in a community” post, I have written a number of blog posts now and would like to invite critique and feedback. Since, alla Johari’s Window, I don’t know what I don’t know.
So, please, take a 5 minute break and skim my last posts and maybe comment on…
- Am I missing anything? (i.e. is my name easy to find so you know who is ‘talking’?)
- Am I referencing correctly?
- In your opinion, is there a typical place where referencing occurs (ie at the end of a post)?
- Am I doing anything you hate?
- Am I doing anything you love … or simply mildly like?
- How might I improve?
- Are my posts too long, too short, or like baby bear … just right?
Anything that comes to mind really. All help gratefully received.
To help the process, things I have struggled with (and want to improve in my posts) are:
- Not knowing where to look to find out the name of the blogger
- Having too large a font on a post so that I have to scroll down and down (my preference is to have it tight so I can take in a lot of data at once)
- Not knowing exactly where to put the links (i.e what words do I highlight? Are there rules?)
- Do I have to highlight every possible link? (ie. in the post about “Messing with Mendeley“, I refer to seven alternative programs and double linked them as they got mentioned twice.)
