Okay, so I’m bringing back the blog of blogs (evalcentral’s original format) that will exist concurrently with this forum. The goal is three fold:
- Support Independent Blogging
- Amplify New Voices
- Archive Conversation
It is now live, you can see what it looks like here > blog.evalcentral.com
How it works.
Basically, it mixes up a bunch of blog feeds to create one big archived super blog.
The blog posts are automatically shared via EvalCentral’s Twitter account, and go out via email to people who subscribe to the daily newsletter.
I need your help.
I need your suggestions on the blogs I should include (you can certainly suggest your own). They should be written for an evaluation audience, if you have questions just ask here.
What it requires.
Don’t worry if you don’t get the jargon, I can help with any of this. But these are basically the three things I need to make it work.
- The blog needs to have a working feed. You can check to see if it’s functional here.
- I need a featured image for use on Eval Central (ideally 1700px by 850px)
- I also require approval from the blogger (if the feed is public, I have access, but participation is totally voluntary).
Current List (italicized just means they are not yet live on eval central):
- freshspectrum (Chris Lysy’s Blog)
- Dana Wanzer’s Blog
- Dr Beth Snow’s Blog
- Nicole Clark’s Blog
- Elizabeth Grim’s Blog
- Cense (Cameron Norman’s Blog)
- Depict Data Studio (Ann K Emery’s Blog)
- Katherine Haugh’s Blog
Awaiting Approval from Blogger
- Carolyn Camman’s Blog
- Nicole Bowman’s Blog
- Sheila Robinson’s Blog
- Ann Murray Brown’s Blog
- Stephanie Evergreen’s Blog
- Eval Cafe (Brian and Carolyn’s Podcast)
- Strong Roots Consulting (Brian Hoessler’s Blog)
If you know someone who doesn’t have a blog, encourage them to start one.
My suggestion is to start a very basic blog using Wordpress.com. You can start small (and free) but it can scale limitlessly if you begin to enjoy it.
