I am still planning to get into a Master's program sometime in the fall next year. Should I add my E-books and Blog Posts to my CV?

I keep my blog posts formal and educational. The following is a link to my blog: http://cybersecwise.com/wordpress/. I do already know people reviewing my CV will not actually read my blog.

I have also written two E-books. One is called "NoSQL Injection for Elasticsearch", which was referenced in a Russian Defcon (Hacker Convention). Since it was referenced in a defcon, does that count as Peer Reviewed? The other E-book is called "Introduction to Web Hacking: Cross-site Scripting".

These things are all computer security related, but I am actually going to go for a Master's in Computer Science.

    I would include them in a section titled "community engagement" or something of that flavor. Note that something being cited is not equivalent to peer-review, do not classify the work as peer-reviewed. – Erik M Oct 2 '19 at 6:15
  • @ErikM Seems like a good answer to me, maybe make it an answer? – GrotesqueSI Oct 2 '19 at 8:37

    Someday everyone will stop using the stupid E- prefix. E-mail is just mail. E-commerce is just commerce. E-books are just books. – JeffE Oct 2 '19 at 23:24

  • Do you think a title of "Extracurricular Activities" would be appropriate? – Gary Drocella Oct 6 '19 at 20:48
  • I think extracurricular activities is only a term that should be used if you are still in school, to differentiate the activities from school activities. – Erik M Oct 6 '19 at 20:53
