Introducing blog resources   Saturday, May 20   9:33 PM

You know that episode of the Simpsons where Homer repeatedly mistakes much smaller mountains for the Murderhorn?

That's how I feel about both the blogosphere and blogosphere studies: it seems like every day, I find some nook that I've missed. The former problem doesn't bother me, because the hope is that eventually sites I like will link to other sites I'll like.

For blogosphere studies, on the other hand, it's a much bigger problem. I have to be lucky to find an article that cites any given article, when I'm not just blindly entering keywords into Google Scholar. What's more, even if I find an article it has to grab my attention from out of a long list of citations.

So right now, I'm reading papers on defining the weblog, papers I could have included in my master's thesis. Thank god for footnotes.

Well, rather than have it go on like this, I've set up two blog research resource pages. Blog resources tracks the conversations that have formed around various works in the field, and allows me to play six degrees of separation with journal articles. And so no one misses any papers that are essential for the blogosphere in general, I've added a Top 20 page. Cites are from Google Scholar and are subject to change; there are a few blind spots still.

I'm also thinking about adding a master list, for my own benefit mainly.

If you think I've missed (and will continue missing) anything, comment or email me. Google scholar uses dissertations or master's theses, and I'll do the same if they're available somewhere. Also so I can include my own increasingly humble-seeming effort.
