Here is the thing:
1. I visit your blog every day. And I may not be seeing a post. And I may be visiting many blogs and not seeing any posts or seeing very few. This makes for a reasonably unproductive activity.
2. I visit your blog every day.
3. I have begun a conversation with you – individually. I have waited for 10 weeks to feel confident enough to do this. But having spoken to you I am expecting you to open yourself in your blog. I am waiting to see you talk about yourself – your reflexive study.
4. Why reflexive: For both capability development and more crucially for creativity development you need to go through an activity that is introspective. The dumbledore exercise of taking stuff out of your head.
5. What would I like: To make my blog cruising productive if you can put a post in every day till Oct 17 (end of sem) that would be good.
Note you may not yet have made the transition to:
1. Starting the Blog: Do so and let us talk about your initial experiences on Monday.
2. You have a blog but Posting to it is some distance away: What is the point you say? You mind is a strange thing. And as designers this is our primary resource. Blogging has been known to make tigers out of mice and other such miracles. So give it a shot. If it doesnt work? Doesn’t mater – its only for another four weeks – you will be rid of this course soon enough.
3. You have a blog and you have posted but are not doign a lot on this now: This is the end of the season, the course. And it is here that the blog becomes crucial. So do it for your mag/ book, for your reflection, for a self assessment. And as a contribution to the newer bloggers.
I went on the net looking for ‘reflexive study’ and in a short span of time could only find this example. Which curiously enough is hugely relevant. Take a look.
