Content Roundup: August 2011

This blog is only one of the places I post content online regularly. Another is Twitter, which you see at the right. But I also post things at other blogs, on Wikipedia and elsewhere.

I’ve decided to do a monthly wrap-up post with links to the main things I’ve posted or created online in the previous month. If for some reason you haven’t gotten your fill of my nonsense lately, it’s a handy way to catch up with what I have been up to in the last 30 days or so.

Blogging

Three posts this month, a little less than normal, but one of them is now by far the most red article on this blog:

Podcasting

I contributed Skeptic History segments to three episodes of Skepticality this month:

I was interviewed on this podcast:

News Coverage

It is rare that I get news coverage but the Mabus story got my name in the paper a few times this month:

There were many, many other blog posts which mentioned the Mabus affair and linked to my post. Thanks to everyone for the link love. You can see pingbacks for most of them on the Mabus post itself in the comments.

Social Media

I posted on Twitter:

  • 135 regular tweets, including:
    • 16 “What’s the harm in…?” stories
    • 31 Skeptic History facts
  • 191 replies to other Twitter posts

Here are highlights, the tweets that were retweeted the most. (Not surprisingly, many revolve around Mabus)

Above got approximately 32 retweets.

Above got approximately 26 retweets.

Above got approximately 17 retweets.

Above got approximately 42 retweets.

Above got approximately 27 retweets.

To get these posts on a more timely basis, you should follow me on Twitter here. You can also see them on Facebook if you prefer, just friend me there.

Crowdsourcing Contributions

I wasn’t able to contribute much to crowdsourcing projects in August, a consequence of Dragon*Con preparation and the Mabus affair taking up much of my time.

I only made 14 edits on Wikipedia, mostly to my user pages.

I rated 3 sites on Web of Trust.

I edited the Skeptic History database 13 times, those edits will be visible in the JREF Today in Skeptic History iPhone App sometime soon.

I uploaded 4 Atlanta Skeptics videos to Vimeo (Skeptical Trivia Contest, Allergies: Why Your Body Is Trying To Kill You, Internet Reviews and My Year of Critical Mothering) and updated the Skepticamp Wiki to link to them.

And that’s it for August. I’ve got some good things planned for September so keep your eyes on this blog.
