I love blogs, and thinking about blogs, or rather, I usually do, but right now, to be completely honest, looking at the dozens and dozens of posts and papers and comments and ideas at Blogtalk right now I feel totally uninterested in blog research.

I have a couple of weeks of work ahead of me before my next bit of holiday but perhaps the summer mood of this blog will be workless.
