Before I head off to create a picture show of our new house for my in-laws, I want to post these two questions about blogging (I'd point out how "blog" rhymes with "nog," but I want to be serious, so I won't.)
1. Has anyone done any research on how blogs are used in other disciplines -- like math, science, theatre, dance, etc......?
2. Has anyone done any research on non-academic uses of blogs--like fundraisers, informational blogs, shop blogs, travel blogs, etc........?
I'm very curious about this since I have been keeping a personal blog and also have used blogs in workshops on blogging, on genealogical research, on fundraising for Katrina clean-up. I'm thinking about expanding "Sister Dysthemia Suggests" into her own blog about "living with depression when you're the landlord." And I'd love to see what people are doing in and outside of academe.
