People often ask how much time I spend on blogging. I’ve been using SlimTimer for the last couple of weeks, so for the first time I actually know. This week I’ve spent 3.9 hours reading blogs and 0.9 hours writing and editing my blog. Last week I spent 2.9 hours reading blogs and 1.8 hours tending to my own. That’s really not very much – I think it would probably do me good to spend more time on this.

    Those are the numbers that I am sure my wife would like, instead, since I am not working and supposed to be working on my thesis, it is more like 4 hours of reading and one hour of writing a day. So much time, that I am even looking a little closer at these “paid” blog positions that are cropping up everywhere. And since my thesis is about web 2.0 applications in the composition class room, I would love to hear more from you : )

    That surely isn’t much! I think my numbers are more in the vicinity of Donovan’s. But with the school year starting again at the end of the week, they will (and must!) go down.

    I can spend over an hour working on one single blog post, though. I envy the writers who can write so much in so little time. I’ll just blame English not being my mother tongue.

    Yeah, it’s really not much – I’d like to spend a lot more!! And yes, when I actually write a blog post it can take a while – there are different kinds of posts though. This one was quick 🙂

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
