Taking The Pulse Of The EduSphere

Over at Intercepts, Mike A. blogs about the apparent slowdown in education posts (Intercepts: Are We Running Out of Stories?) from me and others. This morning aside, I'd say that I'm still keeping things at a pretty good clip (five or so posts a day). And there is a big new juicy audio post to listen to this AM. However, there has been a falloff in other places, as Mike points out, which I'm hoping is just a cyclical thing. In LA, School Me is gone largely because its founder, Bob Sipchen, took a job at the Sierra Club. I don't know what's going on with Eduwonk or the Education Wonks, though I've noticed as well that they are slowed down. I'd blog more if I could afford to, but in fact should probably blog less given the time it takes and the fact that it doesn't pay very well.

PS: One thing that I've also noticed is that there's a lot less linking between and among blogs than it seems like there used to be, other than the occasional fisticuffs. Folks know how to get stories on their own, or are less willing to share credit, or...maybe it's global warming.
