Talk and Play: Becoming a Better Bloggette

I’d like to talk about and play with ways to get started, keep up, and manage a professional academic blog.  From the mundane how should this look and what site should I use to the more abstract  “Why is everything I say on the internet so stupid?” anxiety of publishing and how to get over it, as well as ways to get in touch with and interact with other academic bloggers.

About Rebecca Harris

I am a new professor at a small college in Southwest Florida. Our students take English primarily for first year writing credit or for humanities/liberal arts requirements. I graduated from Texas A&M University-College Station with my PhD in English in May of 2012. My interests are in critical theory, gender studies, queer studies, and Contemporary American Literature.

    I’ve just started my own blog this year, so I have some interest in this. I’m also interested in how to involve students in such a blog, where the academic blog is also a teaching blog with student voices. (maybe this overlaps with the “Domain of One’s Own” concept.

  2. A really useful topic. I’m a relatively prolific writer, but I’ve never been a very good blogger. I’d love to come to a session on academic blogging. I’d also be interesting in thinking about and discussing the distinctions and overlap between blogging and other more “traditional” forms of academic publishing.
