Well, I choose the essay by Lilia Efimova, titled Weblog as a Personal Thinking Space. I went to her blog that she started in June of 2002, her blogs name is Mathemagenic. My first initial thought of this blog has a very professional feel to it and does not have any colors/pictures on it. I read the essay and I realized that she writes about her PhD research and shares with other bloggers in the same practice.
While in many respects my own blogging practices do not necessarily represent those of the majority of bloggers, they do correspond to the uses of journals as part of creative work . In my research that I position as ethnographically informed, the weblog serves as a reflexive journal  and as a space to collect and organise observations, and as a placeholder for catching other relevant bits and pieces that do not fit elsewhere and could be best categorised as information scraps 
Efimova shares her thoughts about a blog is a place to get your ideas out in an organized categories or just random thoughts that need a place to be written down. She also goes in depth about how a “weblog provides multiple ways to retrieve old posts” (Efimova). She states how you can scroll through old posts, go by dates, using archive and more. I never really thought of a blog being a place where you can go back to look at your thoughts through out the years. Any classmates think of a blog in that kind of a way? She talks about how “different stages of idea development are supported by the activities around the weblog content” (Efimova). She has a graph on page eight
about how you can turn your own ideas into a product and I highly suggest you take a look at it.
The last I’d like to comment on is that she used Radio Userland
with her blog. This helped her blog stay organized with her thoughts and posts about her PhD research. I had no idea that they made things like this where it can help you keep your blog organized while you have a million other things to do. Overall, this essay was highly informative about things I did not know that even existed. I recommend you check out the websites I tagged in this post. Anyone else find something super interesting from your essays?
