Being a blog enthusiast I keep thinking about the way I personally use blogs and their potential uses. As mentioned in my first post, I have been primarily using blogs as a way to organize and focus my classes thus the audience has been captive and limited. With the TESOL blog I am venturing into the more typical blogosphere with a potentially unlimited audience. One of my concerns when I began posting for TESOL was capturing an audience. To date that audience (or perhaps the readers who are inclined to leave a comment) has not materialized which leaves me feeling like I am delivering a monologue. I will have to explore ways to get readers (and active commenters) to the blog. Without an active dialogue the blog becomes quite static. I anticipated relying on the audience to steer me to my next topic. Perhaps it’s just the summer and like me many potential readers are far from their desks. As one of my summer projects involves launching a community based blog project for the arts, readership will definitely be a puzzle I will have to solve.
