Dan's Metablog
Writing about blogging, identity, and narrative

Advisor meeting notes #1   Saturday, February 4   2:47 PM

-There's a third way, not rhetorical aspects but the higher-order "narrative structure," that I can probably use to taxonomize my way down to diary weblog (or whatever I end up with!).

-The issue of "success" is problematic. I don't think so, personally, but I can make roughly the same argument without saying something that smacks of the normative.

-Mimi was right, I still have some wriggle room with my corpus. I asked the Bloggies guy for the top nomination-getters for the 2005 and 2006 awards in my category, figuring that was a less distorted metric, and it might happily exclude some of the more problematic or annoying blogs. The end purpose of having "finalists" has little to do with my project.
