Jan Schmidt - Blogging Practices: An Analytical Framework
"This article proposes a general model to analyze and compare different uses of the blog format. Based on ideas from sociological structuration theory, as well as on existing blog research, it argues that individual usage episodes are framed by three structural dimensions of rules, relations, and code, which in turn are constantly (re)produced in social action. As a result, ‘‘communities of blogging practices’’ emerge-that is, groups of people who share certain routines and expectations about the use of blogs as a tool for information, identity, and relationship management. This analytical framework can be the basis for systematic comparative and longi- tudinal studies that will further understanding of similarities and differences in blog- ging practices.

I am a blogging researcher: Motivations for blogging in a scholarly context | Kjellberg | First Monday
The number of scholarly blogs on the Web is increasing. In this article, a group of researchers are asked to describe the functions that their blogs serve for them as researchers. The results show that their blogging is motivated by the possibility to share knowledge, that the blog aids creativity, and that it provides a feeling of being connected in their work as researchers. In particular, the blog serves as a creative catalyst in the work of the researchers, where writing forms a large part, which is not as prominent as a motivation in other professional blogs. In addition, the analysis brings out the blog’s combination of functions and the possibility it offers to reach multiple audiences as a motivating factor that makes the blog different from other kinds of communication in scholarly contexts.

Fitzpatrick - The Pleasure of the Blog: The Early Novel, the Serial, and the Narrative Archive
Argues that the blog might be well thought of as the early novel, both in form and in how it works subject positions. It's been under-theorized at any rate. This position complicates notions of authenticity and mediate relation of blog posts to blogger. "All blogs, for Himmer, are in some sense literary, because of the nature of their readers’ interactions with them. ... Such a claim begins to suggest that the reasons we read blogs may be slightly different than we have often imagined; through this understanding, blogs offer not simply a voyeuristic peek into someone else’s life — though, obviously, that numbers among their pleasures, too — but they also offer a form of writing that engages the reader by requiring her not simply to consume the content presented but also, in some sense, to produce that content, to complete what is present through a knowledge of what is past, an exploration of the ways that that present is situated, and a commitment to return in the future."

It's the culture, stupid! How Atlassian maintains an open information culture
Pretty good article about wikis in Atlassian, a wiki-value-added company. The emphasis is on local practices of sharing ("culture" is the code word), and how those practices are made open on local wikis and blogs. Good for outlining some of the possible practices corporate wonks might be asked to engage. Some cheer leading, but worth a butchers.

This Is Me: This Is Me Introduction
University of Reading. "In an environment where there are many ways to publish material quickly and easily, such as social networking sites ... and all manner of other ways of expressing yourself on the web, people can find that they have their 'web presence' spread across multiple sites. What's more, other people might post something about you without you knowing about it - and it might be done quite innocently.

We are developing a number of short exercises and learning materials to help people think about what sorts of issues there are about DI."

Powerful feedback loops, and why should you care «
A real-time blog feedback loop turns an audience hostile and dynamites an ethos: within minutes of his posting the story, someone in Florida emailed him a link to a story about Naccio cashing $200 in stock even as his company stock prices dropped. Gillmor posted that link in his next post, and almost instantly, the audience began to turn hostile against Naccio."

Alana Taylor: Online Reputation: A Love/Hate Relationship
I, for one, don't really mind being open online. I think that having a blog is one of the best ways of managing your personal brand and controlling your reputation. A blog allows you to write your side of the story -- always. If there was a picture that was posted or comment that was made about you that you didn't approve of or that you want to explain... your blog is the place to do it.
