=== some pro bloggers ===

=== the daily daily / personal blogs ===
One thing blogs teach us is how to understand and how to value the everyday, the ordinary round of events.

- Tam I Am "Female. New Zealander. West-Central Auckland to be specific. Maori/Pakeha mixed ethnicity. Artist. Total movie buff. Designer. Half assed author. Narcissist. a textbook J.A.F.A -and proud."
- Java Diva] (via [ bizefingers]) Described as "Where caffeine musings meet soccer mom realities!"
- GirlHacker's Random Log Broad observations, often using a tv-journalist/news reportage voice - but always linking out: connecting Lily Tao's home life with the rest of the world. Powered by Blogger, and the blog is tied into a larger site. [ Bargin Hunting] illustrates the tie of home to outside.
- BecBlog Often brief, short entries. Bec occasinally posts small images from sites as a way in to critiquing and commenting on them. The images are all cited. I'm guessing doing this (small, low res images, for commenting, and source cited and linked to, by a private citizen) is legal under fair use.
- The Gallerita! A casual daily round, notable for lots of ''commenting'' from readers and friends.
- snoop bloggy blog July, 2006: Retired and archived. "a journal spanning four years and two continents." A blog interesting for how long Jen kept it and the variety of forms she used: some entries are haiku-like, others are lists, others short daily round entries, still others meditations. Often elliptical: notable for what she doesn't mention. She writes from a variety of places and often describes those surroundings as she writes - a narrative device of metalepsis. See, for instance, her [ blog entries from London]. Jen is now writing [ librarisaurus rex], a young adult/library blog.
- The Obviious Euan Semple. Meditation, commentary on Macs, UK rambles. Notable for breadth and focus: he covers a lot of topics, but focuses each entry neatly.
- Jeremy's Weblog. "Random trying-to-be-funny observations about law school life."

=== blogs tied to other media ===
- Blogs at the BBC by reporters and editors. Gives a behind the scenes look at how the newsroom works, tracking stories, opinion, and listenership.

=== institutional blogs ===
blogs tied to departments, divisions, institutions to carry our institutional goals
- [[ ETS at Pitt]]

=== scholarly / academic blogs ===
Blog activities are often scholarly activities. The blogger searching, reading, linking to and making thoughtful comment on events and postings is doing scholarly work. There is some discussion on [ Academic credit for blogging] and [ Blogging Thoughts: Personal Publication as an Online Research Tool, Torill Mortensen and Jill Walker. pdf download.] See more a BlogReadingsForCourse

Two kinds:scholars blogging in their position as scholars, and blogs supporting group scholarly activity.

=== professional blogs: blogs in support of professional practices: freelancing, editorializing, reputation building ===
Perhaps all blogs are involved self-promotion to an exent (and all language is sermonic). Some illustrate how providing content supports self-promotion and freelancing; others are focused more on professional practices.

=== collective blogs ===

* Revising Teaching. A group blog. "Serving as a forum to reflect on the teaching of writing and rhetoric, Revising Teaching invites contributions from anyone who believes that good teaching, like good writing, is achieved through constant revision.

* The invisible adjunct. "Occasional thoughts on higher education, campus politics, the use and abuse of adjunct faculty, the academic "job market," and various other absurdities." Set up to encourage participants to post comments. Less discussion on pedagogy and more reaction. Gives an interesting sense of how teaching is perceived. [via culturecat]
