@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat People assess a blog by what it looks like it is. To be taken seriously act like it’s serious already. 2/18/2014 16:09
@FromPhDtoLife What’s one big question you (adjuncts & academics in general) have abt social media? #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:09

@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat and for overcoming your academic perfectionism. If you want it to be successful it HAS to be regular. 2/18/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Would love to hear more about what you mean about this #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @ECRPublishing Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 2/18/2014 16:10
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat If you can’t foresee blogging AT LEAST once a week (but preferably 3-7 days a week) then just guest blog with others 2/18/2014 16:11
@Comprof1 Sorry I’m late got caught up in the Olympics #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:11
@FromPhDtoLife What place does blogging have in your work & life, @CamelsHammers? How would you describe its importance? #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:12
@CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat I would write on the train, I would wake up o 4 hours sleep, I was propelled by the rush of being heard. 2/18/2014 16:12
@JPSargeant78 #adjunctchat don’t try 2B a stat whore when blogging. Write with an audience in mind u can connect with. The stats will follow if done right 2/18/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer RT @FromPhDtoLife: What’s one big question you (adjuncts & academics in general) have abt social media? #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:12
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers I wonder: Is this writing in general? True, with well-promoted blogs you get an audience *now.* But… 2/18/2014 16:12

@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Why was blogging your communication mechanism of choice and how did it connect (or not) with your #adjunct work? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:13
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers … But what if blogging or popular movements aren’t my thing, or at least not my main thing? 2/18/2014 16:13
@FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers When you say this, what are you envisioning? Profitable blog? A good marketing strategy for a service business? #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:13

@nicole_matos2 #adjunctchat, I’ve had good luck with @Medium as a platform for less-regular blogging–up to 10K readers, not bad for posting twice a month 2/18/2014 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer @JPSargeant78 Always a useful suggestion; communication does require an audience, even one in mind! #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:14
@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat Personally, I revolve my life around blogging. It’s psychologically necessary for me to express myself with it. 2/18/2014 16:14
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers I can see how I’m different. I like to showboat, sure. But being heard is a pain. I need to hide from people. 2/18/2014 16:14
@Melissa_Venable RT @JeffreyKeefer @JPSargeant78 Always a useful suggestion; communication does require an audience, even one in mind! #AdjunctChat #blogging 2/18/2014 16:15
@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat Blogging has freed me up to stop being a perfectionist and stop worrying about academic novelty or “cred” 2/18/2014 16:15
@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat By blogging I have allowed myself the academic’s dream to follow one’s passions.I always say that I would rather 2/18/2014 16:15

@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat Blogging also became the door to independent business. In 2013I had ~25 independent students, made $18,000 2/18/2014 16:17
@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat those students came from the base of readers who respected what I did on my blog. 2/18/2014 16:17

@CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat And, of course, relevance. 2/18/2014 16:29
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat A mistake people make with blogging is thinking one viral hit means your ship comes in. 2/18/2014 16:29
@FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy Interesting! I’m much more comfortable with the little bits of insight, 350-500 words at a time #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:30
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat The only way to build significant traffic is with consistent production and quality of production. 2/18/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife @IshaiBarnoy Were your blog posts then related to your academic work / teaching? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:30
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers I have 3 blogs and 2 twitter accounts. Separates personal/prof #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:30
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat For a big viral wave of readers, few will stick. Especially if the viral post is tangential to main blog themes. 2/18/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer RT @CamelsHammers: @JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat People were telling me my blog inspired them 2 study philosophy. So I’d be… 2/18/2014 16:31
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Yeah, this raised a firestorm on my twitter feed. Mostly disagreement. Vicious disagreement. 2/18/2014 16:31
@FromPhDtoLife @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @CamelsHammers Me neither, not directly: But everything I tweet/blog counts as marketing #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:31

@CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz #adjunctchat Really? who disagreed? 2/18/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Are you still teaching and juggling the many #adjunct courses you taught? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:32
@Comprof1 @CamelsHammers true, but I just don’t have time to be so prolific. More important to be consistent if you want following #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy Also in blog form? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:32
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Sorry, I won’t out anybody. But they’re loud enough. See if you can search for’em. 2/18/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Did you intend to build traffic at first? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:33
@CamelsHammers @Comprof1 #adjunctchat I would choose quality over quantity. But people don’t regularly check slow updating blogs. Need to habituate them. 2/18/2014 16:33
@FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz lol many. See #engagedacademics for example. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:33

@Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS #adjunctchat Agreed! There’s something to be said for focusing on the positive. 2/18/2014 16:35
@CamelsHammers @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat Took a year for a viral explosion. Then another year until I got on a major platform and became successful. 2/18/2014 16:35
@CamelsHammers @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat It’s a commitment. I would only recommend it to writers who value their independence to write freely above all 2/18/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 @CamelsHammers I learned to announce on twitter and LinkedIn #Adjunctchat interesting that I still have some posts popular written 4 yrs ago 2/18/2014 16:36
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat I use my prof blogging as a place to share ideas, connect & store things I want to remember to use. Like a 10 yr old scrapbook 2/18/2014 16:37
@CamelsHammers @Comprof1 #adjunctchat Are you able to build so many different blogs, splitting your energies and audiences like that? 2/18/2014 16:37
@AdjunctChat Still time to participate in today’s #AdjunctChat with @CamelsHammers talking about his adjunct blogging #AltAc #PostAc #ECRchat #PhDchat 2/18/2014 16:37

@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS I’m starting to see this “focus on the positive” philosophy as … not available to everyone. 2/18/2014 16:37
@FromPhDtoLife MT @JustCallMeAngVS: @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat I like blogs with direct experience and ones that are free from the ‘woe is me’ attitude 2/18/2014 16:37

@FromPhDtoLife @Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS Absolutely! I think that’s what gotten me visitors #adjunctchat Personal, positive content & tone 2/18/2014 16:38
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @CamelsHammers I have still not figured out how to leverage #LinkedIn and think we need an #AdjunctChat on it for adjuncts! 2/18/2014 16:38
@Melissa_Venable @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat Can you speak more to positivity being unavailable to everyone? 2/18/2014 16:38

@JustCallMeAngVS @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable Yes because many times not much is positive about being paid less for (mostly) doing better work #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer RT @FromPhDtoLife: @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz lol many. See #engagedacademics for example. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Not familiar with the #engagedacademics hashtag #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:39
@Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS #adjunctchat Careful in terms of … ? I think you’re right, but that it applies to everyone using social media. 2/18/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable I have heard that, as none of this social “stuff” counts toward tenure #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:40
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat I try to model and enforce academic standards of civility, which is a huge challenge in the blogosphere 2/18/2014 16:40
@rcbatp This one went sort of viral: a personal narrative http://t.co/ST4BsFr1SW — featured on @AJStream — agree — make it personal #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable Of course, adjuncts are not bound by a tenure dance #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @CamelsHammers 3 are group blogs used by students, also I write w/ my sister trying to create writing credentials. Only 1 mine. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:40
@JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat Careful because said employer would probably not like knowing a prized employee is also teaching adjunct 2/18/2014 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Why was writing to be read such a passion for you? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:41
@CamelsHammers Yes, your blog is very personable,appealing, optimistic, feels like you offer hope to people. I liked it a lot @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:41
@FromPhDtoLife @JustCallMeAngVS @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable I started current blog only when I was feeling good about myself. Important #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:41

@LitProfSuz @CamelsHammers @Comprof1 #adjunctchat I’m simple, use Blogger. Have a clear audience/purpose for each. Helps me stay in the writing mode. 2/18/2014 16:42
@CamelsHammers @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat yes, I decided self-expression is more important than full time work at a university. 2/18/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers How do you have time for all them? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:43
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @FromPhDtoLife @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable I started writing because I had time. 2/18/2014 16:43
@Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS True. We sign employment contracts – other work sometimes encouraged, sometimes not-check what you agreed to. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable always need to be careful, but don’t use as excuse NOT to. #adjunctchat NEVER talk about students. 2/18/2014 16:43
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable Some would call that a conscious pay cut. 2/18/2014 16:44
