I have a very quickly growing list (list = delicious tag) of recommended reading for myself. This is mostly blog posts that came through my RSS reader but I didn’t have time to read fully and then blog about myself. Well, it seems the list keeps growing and I’m not reading and blogging quick enough! So, here are some of them in a condensed version of what I would have liked. 🙂
- Organizational blogging case study
Check out Priscilla Brice-Weller’s blog post from her presentation that offers a great, first-hand description and comparison of two organizations’ approaches to blogging.
- Online activism
The Net2 ThinkTank question this month was “Is online activism good for social change?” but I was not back in time from the trip to participate with an answer. Check out the answers that other bloggers contributed by reading Britt’s summary here.
- Measuring social media effectiveness
ROI has been a subject of conversation throughout the blogosphere for quite some time now and has even sprouted up as a popular conference session topic. Beth has a great post that includes questions to keep in mind when thinking about ROI for your own projects or for participation in these conversations.
- Twitter for news
No, that isn’t supposed to say ‘Twitter in the news.’ Andy Carvin discusses how the NPR member station in Boston is exploring Twitter in their news organization.
- More Twitter, listening
On the subject of Twitter, Beth Kanter and Beth Dunn point to an artist who is using Twitter to listen. Just like I have said before, Twitter (and other social media tools) are not one way megaphones, but talking and listening devices.
Phew! Glad I got some of those off my chest! So much reading still to do thanks to all that time without internet access. It may mean more lists and not long posts but I’ll do what I can!
