Post for Campus Blog Talk
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 10:54 am

Link to AlaPSA presentation on blogs post (definition, short bibliography).

To Start a Blog:


To See the Blogosphere in Action:


  • Memeorandum
  • Technorati
  • “The Academy”


  • PoliBlog: Politics is the Master Science-Reader Participation
  • Law Professor Ann Althouse comments: What is the essence of blogging?
  • Bryan S. from Arguing with Signposts: Interactivity:
    Blogging isn’t the “next great thing.�? It’s not even the “last great thing.�? It’s just another form of media that is much more available to people like you and I. That’s the promise, and the peril of blogging. As I sometimes tell my classes: The good thing about the internet is that anyone can put up a web page (weblog). The bad thing about the internet is that anyone can put up a web page (weblog).

  • James Joyner at OTB:
    Mostly that, like “media,” “blogging” is not just one thing. A weblog is merely one medium for conveying information to readers. InstaPundit, Wonkette, Captains Quarters, Daily Kos, and Boing Boing all do very different things in different ways. To simply lump them all together as “blogs” borders on meaningless.

Measuring the Blogosphere

  • The Truth Laid Bear Ecosystem
  • TTLB: EcoTraffic
  • PoliBlog: Site Meter for the Year
  • Instapundit: Sitemeter for the year.
  • OTB: Site Meter for the Year
  • Fruits and Votes: Sitemeter for the Year
  • Unlocked Wordhoard: Site Meter for the Year

Troy University Blogs

  • PoliBlog
  • Unlocked Wordhoard (Dr. Scott Nokes)
  • Logoi Kai Erga: Words and Deeds (Dr. Glen Gill)
  • Troy PoliSci Club’s Blog

The Brave New World

  • Professor David Greenberg’s experience with blogging was difficult (but it did get him a piece in the New York Times (Dr. Greenberg is an assistant professor of Journalism and Media Studies and History at Rutgers University)
  • As did journalist Walter Kirn ( Breaking With Tradition (thanks to Dr. Glenn Cohen of Troy University for noting the piece to me via e-mail).

  3. On Linking Ethics

    How much culpability does a blogger have for the content of the sites on his blogroll? We all seemed to agree that the culpability is limited, since we all link to sites that have content with which we disagree.
