Faculty Talk on Blogging and Personal Websites

Earlier this year, I gave an informal talk to our faculty and staff about how I use blogging and my personal website. My talk slides.

As you can see, I made one basic point: like-minded people may be interested in our work as faculty members, but we often give them no way to keep track of us. Blogging, Twitter and my personal website all help plug that gap.

The remainder of my slides show, step-by-step, how I post content, starting at my website and ending at Twitter. I wanted my colleagues to see that it’s not really that complicated, and it doesn’t take a lot of extra time to share everything I do. I also showed some of the ways I get feedback from the content I share, including stats and @replies at Twitter.
