Starting a New Blog: Need Your Input

Hello faithful readers.  I’ve started up a new blog over at for several reasons:

  • I’ve found (over the years) that non-math people are not thrilled about “following” a math-oriented blog.
  • I’ve started doing a lot of speaking about education and technology in general, and want the “brand” for my consulting to be more centered on learning than on math, specifically.
  • I want to do a lot more writing in my role as a Learning Futurist (and needed a new space for it).

So I imported a bunch of the blog posts about higher education, futuring, and learning in general into the new space (no worries, they are all still here at TCM too).

Now the question is … how do YOU want me to handle cross-posting?

You’ve got three choices:

  1. I can separate (as much as possible) math stuff to this blog and general learning and futuring stuff to EdgeofLearning.  If you want both, you can subscribe to both.
  2. When I post on EdgeofLearning I can announce the post and include a link here on TCM.
  3. When I post on EdgeofLearning I can include the full text here on TCM.

Your thoughts?

    1 makes the most sense to me, with maybe a helping of 2, when you think the post is relevant. Maybe just a sidebar showing the 5 most recent posts at edgeoflearning?

  • I’ll have both blogs in my Google Reader, so 3 is the only bad option for me. I care more about the math, but I think I’ll find some good ideas on your new blog, too. (I’m nowhere near as big a fan of technology as you are, but I think you’ll point me to the best things to think about.)

    I’ll vote for 1, with 2 if/when it’s relevant to both blogs.

    Also, FYI, somehow your new blog is showing up as “(title unknown)” in my Google Reader list.

  • @Josh Yeah, if I give the blog a title in WordPress (which names the feed as well), then the title prints on top of the header (which I don’t want). It’s one of those “under construction” items I’m working on. Incidentally, if you know how to fix this one, please let me know!

    Sue just said what I was going to say.

    I vote for #2

  • Michael Wolf says:

    Since I will have an RSS feed for both blogs, I agree that full posting to both places is redundant. For the sake of newcomers to either blog, who may not realize that there is another place to look, option 2 may be a good idea, or at least some general cross reference to the exitence of 2 diffierent sites.
