Here we go with a blog post about blogging (maybe the most popular topic ever) as part of participating in the OERu open course Open education, copyright and open licensing in a digital world (LiDA 103).

As an introduction, I have my calling card site at another domain, maybe the best internet address I could hope for cog.dog but also this blog’s own about page (now 17 years old). Probably my must consistent, persistent open activity has been 65,000+ photos I’ve shared on flickr since it started (in 2004), all of them open licensed by Creative Commons CC0 (a pile of them are CC BY too).

I am taking the course to get a participant’s view of the experience, but also to test myself as I am typically the kind that signs up for open courses but rarely finishes.

This is a post in response to the Declare Yourself activity, and hopefully too, a test of the LiDA103 blog syndication based on my tags here.

Thus I am declared!


Featured Image: I did not have a photo that specifically represented the idea of “declare” just found a nice sunset one that had the word in the caption.
