The Dynamics of Group Blogging

Rosa Say will begin this session with a case study of Joyful Jubilant Learning (JJL) from her perspective as the site's founder and managing editor. JJL is a group blog dedicated to collaborative online learning; the site was created in 2006 as the web-based forum of the Hoʻohana Community of self-proclaimed lifelong learners in "Web 2.0 and beyond." To date 58 contributors, predominantly business authors and bloggers who are individually successful on the web in their own right, have tackled tertiary community learning on JJL via monthly themes as challenging as digital literacy and citizen publishing, and as joyfully fun as learning in pictures. How do they do it?

Within this presentation, participants can expect to learn:

  • What is involved in the publishing of a group blog? How does an editorial calendar work?
  • Why should you consider being a contributor to a group blog? What are the rewards and benefits?
  • How does being a "group blogger" differ from being a "guest author?" What other expectations are there of group bloggers?
  • How does a group blog's Advisory Board function in compared to the Board of Directors of a business?
  • How does group blogging complement emerging initiatives in social media--and vice versa?

In addition, Rosa will allow ample time for your questions and dialogue.
