I was recently introduced to Tom Haskin's blog called growing changing learning creating. Not sure how this one skipped my radar, but Tom's been on a roll. Here he breaks down blogs into four types and the value they provide to the blogger. I think it's pretty darn interesting—but I'm having a hard time putting L+E into any one of these. Is it possible to exhibit multiple combinations?
Here's an excerpt from the post:
"Distraction blogging: Sometimes our motives are purely self indulgent. "It's all about me". We are inherently narcissistic and alarming to the observers of social media. We are driven to blog for selfish reasons by our troubled situation. Our "real life" is bringing us down or trapping us in oppressive obligations. I explored these motivations in my post about the popularity of Twitter."
Check out what Tom's been up to. It's interesting stuff.
