After the Eddies and the Downesies, and in the spirit of end of year reviews, I’ve decided to award myself some Selfies, ie awards for my own blog given by me.
Here they are:
I think I’ll give this to the Future of Content debate. I’m not sure it worked as an integrated article, but I enjoyed the discussion and playing with the format. This is probably the closest I’ve come to something that compares with ‘proper’ scholarly output in my blog.
Aside from this one, I think the Lexicon for real world/virtual world interaction was a naked bit of linkbaiting. And it didn’t even work. Sorry.
I do like having my Twitter posts showing up on but I think I’ll give this to Ligit. I don’t use it a lot but socially enhanced search is going to be big I reckon.
Favourite use of media
I don’t use embedded media much (see below) so haven’t got a lot to choose from. So it’s a no-brainer to go for Slidecasts. Insomnia sufferers will be pleased to hear I plan to do more of these next year.
Most irritating habit
I seem incapable of doing a post:
- that doesn’t
- a list
- of some sort.
Biggest area for improvement
If we accept I’m not going to have a personality change and become more interesting, than I really am too text based. I need to use more images, and this is my resolution for next year, to add more ‘design’ to my posts.
The post that most improved your technorati ranking. It was probably the Future of content one, but I’ll give it to The VLE/LMS is dead, because it was a post I knocked off quickly and was surprised by the interest it generated. Which goes to show, you can never tell what posts will spark off a debate in the blogosphere.
So there they are, the Selfies: indulgent, self-referential and pointless. Bit like the Oscars really…
