I’ve now finished and published four blog posts as part of my look at self-regulation for my Foundations 4 Final Project. When I was initially figuring out the details of this project, I thought about how important it was for me to publicly share these reflections. I learn so much from the interactions I have online and in person after blogging, and I wanted these interactions to be a part of this project. I guess that I saw these posts as provocations for continued conversations.
This is where I’m now struggling because these four blog posts seem to have generated the least amount of interest, comments, and conversations than any blog posts that I’ve published in the past. In the spirit of the course and the reflecting that I’ve done since I starting take the first Foundations Course, I’m now left wondering “why.”
- Is self-regulation not a topic of interest for others?
- Does some of the self-regulation terminology used in these posts make the content less accessible and/or less interesting to readers?
- Are people less interested in re-exploring blog posts that have been previously published and would rather new content?
- Is it a question of timing? With the wonderful weather this weekend, are people outside more and less interested in reading online content?
- Is it for another reason altogether?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this, for over the next couple of weeks — and maybe longer — I plan on blogging more about self-regulation, and I’m hoping these posts are the starting point for future discussions. What could I do to make this possible?
