Academic Blogging Discussion


Over on PhD2Published you´ll find my response to the Guardian Higher Education Network blog post by Leonard Cassuto suggesting that academic blogging is pretty much a waste of time. When I read the article I tweeted that my head had “exploded” because there were so many things I thought Cassuto had got wrong about blogging in general, let alone in academia. The main issue with what he says is that he seems to think blogging is just one thing and of course it isn´t. In my own work blogging is both a critical platform (and one which requires deeper critical analysis) and tool for networking and sharing. But of course the irony hasn´t been lost on anyone that Cassuto is bitching about academic blogging on an academic blog!
