Week 2 Introduction

Hi everyone,

Welcome to week 2 of Should I Blog? The links to the Week 2 Content, Discussion, and Activities are posted. See http://shouldiblog.org/week-2-what-do-i-want-to-share/

In this week we look both internally and externally when we consider what to share on our blogs. There is no right answer to these questions – rather it is a matter of considering what you are comfortable with. With blogging you are self-publishing. I want to highlight that it is very important that you read the short bit on Responsible Self-Publishing.

I’ll also talk more next week (week 3) about sharing images – but for now, consider that copyright exists on images – especially those taken by professional photographers – so if you see a picture you want to include, don’t assume that you can without first checking to see if there are any copyright restrictions (assume there are unless otherwise listed).

If you have blogged a response to the discussion about where you draw the line, please email the link and I’ll add it to the list in “What to share and not share on your blog”.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email.

Cheers,
Rebecca
