In this episode of Between the Chapters Laura chats with Bonnie Stewart and Clint Lalonde about their blogging journey. We reflect on the posts we’ve written, the community of bloggers, and what it means related to Chapter 10: Blogs. Initially the affinity of “bloggers” connected a number of educators and academics to meet up at conferences and make connections with others in higher ed. Additionally, we saw how these personal blogs morphed towards commodification and commercial — with the goals for putting out content or creating a brand. We miss the candid, vulnerable spaces of what edu blogs were back in 2003 and what it means to still be blogging today.
