That's right! My corpus! I totally forgot to tell you.
Here are the blogs I'll be studying:
2004 entriesReal E FunTequila MockingbirdGreek TragedyLondonmark
2005 entriesMimi in New YorkFinslippy
These two blogs were also nominated this year, and frankly they're messing up my whole "predefined category" conceit by forcing me to narrow the field to the "ostensibly autobiographical." Obvious, yes, but I'm trying to avoid being arbitrary:Go Fug YourselfSaid the Gramophone
Thoughts so far? I'd always thought Dooce sucked, but in reality, Dooce is pretty entertaining reading — no wonder it's the web's most popular single-author personal weblog. (I'm still a bit leery of the term "lifelog.")
But you know who does suck? Mimi. I do not look forward to spending more time with that particular writing voice, nor do I think I would enjoy spending more than three seconds with the girl behind the blog.
