So, this is kind of cool. You join the KB site and get a blog space. Not bad. Anyway, I wrote the review of the Killingsworth article and it was posted (hooray me!). I'm wondering if anyone will read this blogeration attempt. Scene: internet/faculty breakroom at Miami University. Agent: Moi.
Act: Yet another attempt to make a blog.
Agency: I act through the interface, I guess. I'm not postive about this one. Maybe an imminent scholar will help me out. How do I act? I act by putting words into a space that I both hope many will view and enjoy and that no one will view and thus will have no evidence by which to incriminate me.
Purpose: To keep me from reading and writing my prospectus. To while away hours while it rains in Oxford.
So, what motivates blogging? I still don't know. I try to do it all the time and end up creating page that clutter up the internet. Does anyone actually read blogs? I guess I read the Synecdoche one by Rebecca Moore Howard. But that has a professional imperative behind it. I'm wondering about the average blogger, do folks take time to read that writer's stuff? Another burning question: what length is a blog entry? I know they can be as long or as short as the writer deems necessary, but is there an accepted length? LOL @ being an undergrad thinker--how long does this have to be?
Ok, back to Anne Francis Wysocki, who btw, does the coolest work in all of the rhet-comp universe.
