I have started this blog back in 2006 (using a different blog software) to end my email “curiousity letter” as I kept adding friends to it who were then not able to read previous mails. Though not many of my friends were and are avid blog readers, I hope they do stop by now and then to see what I’ve come across.

Then in March of this year, I decided to open my blog to the public, not because I thought I could revolutionize the blogosphere or become the next big thing, but to make it easier for people I know to read my postings without going through the hassle of signing up for a user account and keeping track of another login and password.

Due to my quickly upcoming participation in the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge Online Course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes, I had to think about creating another blog to be able to post my thoughts and reflections on the course. However, on second thought I wondered why I shouldn’t use this blog here as I will continue to be curious and wonder about stuff. Only the scope of my musings will be extended. Up until now I did not write about anything related to my learning experiences etc., but only about other things. I can use this opportunity to jump into the cold water and also write about things here that concern me professionally.

Let’s see how it goes.

One thought on “Extending the scope of this blog

  1. I think that’s a great idea to mix and connect private wonderings and professional wonderings :-). In your brain/mind they are connected and interwoven anyway. So why try and artificially separate those “things”..? And after all, the greatest minds of all times were never (1) part-time private being and (2) part-time professional researcher… It’s all about the curiosity attitude!
