It’s the format, the content of the posts, and the stark similarity. Well, Kitty’s was more generic, using just another Blogger native template, while Irish’s seemed to be customized.
Either way, because the content was way similar, I was wondering why on earth would an MBA course require a student to setup a blog for him/herself. If I find more of these in my email heap, I just may ask where they are going to school in. Or maybe I should just sift through their blogs?
Okay, I bloghopped through Irish’s linkies, and lookie what I found: these guys must be taking their MBA in De LaSalle University, one of the most prestigious universities in the Philippines.
O-kaaay. I wonder if the professor is just into creating buzz and link love for his/her own site or something. Either way, I am ambivalent about the entire thing. The “tech evangelist” in me likes the exposure they are required to have, but the “blogger purist” in me thinks the entire exercise is so fake.
But then, let’s stick with saturating the rising economies with tech education. I commend the professor for requiring blogging exposure. But can’t he/she require more meaty content?!
I don’t know how else to end this but in my classic LolCat expression of the season: KTHXBAI!
