Want to start blogging about evaluation, but not sure where to start? Started, but want to know what to expect (or what to do next, or how to keep it going)? Ready to take your independent consulting practice to the next level? Or just want to have fun with a new way of communicating with fellow evaluators?

In this Think Tank session at the American Evaluation Association's annual conference, Ann Emery, Susan Kistler, Sheila B. Robinson, and Chris Lysy shared blogging experiences with attendees. Each evaluator has experience blogging in a variety of channels and formats--personal blogs, blogging on behalf of an employer, writing for AEA365, blogging through cartoons and videos, or blogging by guest-posting or co-authoring blog posts. Facilitators shared strategies for success and addressed potential concerns relevant to both novice and veteran bloggers in an interactive format with opportunities for participants to ask specific questions.

  • Hi I’m Ann…

  • … I enjoy getting guest bloggers to share their own perspectives…
  • Aea365 is the American Evaluation Association’s blog – it is by evaluators, for evaluators. I used to serve as the Executive Director of AEA and I helped to start aea365, now Sheila Robinson is it’s lead curator. I used to blog weekly on aea365, and now it is monthly.
  • Lots and lots of topics are covered and the archive is a wealth of information. Each post has hot tips, cool tricks, and/or lessons learned. Let me tell you the titles of just a few from recent months.
  • Aea365 is a great place to start if you are thinking about blogging, but not quite ready to start your own blog. Anyone working or studying or teaching evaluation can submit a contribution. They range from humorous (Kylie Hutchinson’s evaluation Christmas Carols are among my favorites) to tech tips, to links to resources. All four of us have contributed multiple times to aea365 and we invite you to do the same.
