writing a book about blogs!
This spring I was asked by Andrea Drugan at Polity Press whether I’d be interested in writing a book about blogging for their new series of books on new media. A few weeks ago, I signed the contract!
So that’s my big project for this year – my deadline is September 1, 2007, which is just two months after my sabbatical starts, so I’m going to have to do the bulk of the writing while running the department and teaching and so on. That means discipline and writing a bit every day. Right now I’m working on the prehistory of blogs. I’ve been reading a lot about the introduction of print, and thinking about the many connections between that and blogging today.
And I’m strangely shy about blogging it. I’m not sure why.
