Did you buy your domain name this year? Did you purchase YourName[dot]com? Did you start a new blog? I have observed a massive upswing in both new web domains and blogs amongst the student affairs professionals that I follow on Twitter. It would seem that buying your name as your web address and starting a blog on said URL is the "in" thing to do in 2011. While a lot of people have been blogging for several years and/or already have a registered domain name, it would seem that a large swath of professionals have recently begun to dip their toes in the student affairs techie pool.

Several student affairs associations and job posting sites offer RSS feeds for their position announcements.

When your editor asks if you plan on "weighing in on the placenta/Facebook story" it gets your attention. Having read "Facebook, a Placenta and a Lawsuit" on Monday, I re-read the article and the comments from Inside Higher Ed readers. Four students in the nursing program at Johnson County Community College were "dismissed" from the program after they posted a photograph of a placenta on at least one Facebook profile.
