Welcome, newb higher ed bloggers!

One outcome of the CASE Conference on Communications, Marketing and Technology was the introduction of at least two new higher ed blogs. (Another, more startling outcome: conference chair Tim O’Keeffe tweeted for the first time since Colgate’s big win over Bucknell. ;) )

In Friday’s post, I introduced one of these newbie blogs, Paul Redfern’s Higher Ed Web Marketing. Yes, it’s yet another play off the name of the one, the only, the original higher ed marketing blog, which we discussed in item 3 of a recent Friday Five. (But Paul’s new to blogging, so we’ll cut him some slack. Plus, he’s in good company with DW [in URL if not name] and Dennis Miller.) Paul is off to a good start with some posts about the conference.

Another new blogger emerging from the conference is Eddie Merille of Florida International University. Eddie’s posted some thoughts about the conference keynote presentation by Fritz McDonald of Stamats, and a good response to the question, How can web 2.0 help me market my institution? FIU is already leveraging some web 2.0 tools, like YouTube, Flickr and Issuu, for marketing. Nice work.

So, I’m pleased to welcome these two newbs* to the blogosphere. Blog well, blog often.

*Yes, that’s newbs, not n00bs; and there is a difference.
