Uses/benefits of blogging for knowledge workers

This another slide of my presentation, but this one is probably the most important for me as this is the frame I use to think about weblogs in my PhD research trying to summarise (possible) uses/benefits of blogging for knowledge workers.

What’s in it for me?

  • Publishing
  • Personal information management
    • Watching trends, staying updated (~’search’ strategy)
    • Documenting experiences and ideas
    • Organising links, ideas and references
  • Dialogue and networking
    • Getting feedback and evaluation of ideas, engaging in conversations

    • Establish contacts based on common interests
    • Emergent community
  • Learning
    • As a result of:
      • staying updated
      • articulation
      • organising ideas
      • conversations

      • being part of a community

    • As a side effect: writing, communication, search and technology skills
