Scholarly Reflections on Blogging

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and so, I thought I would repost my thinking on scholarly blogging. I am completing one book and have two more underway and that is where most of my time is going.

And so, I am heeding William Powers’ thoughts on “a new digital philosophy” as “a way of thinking that takes into account the human need to connect outward, to answer the call of the crowd, as well as the opposite need for time and space apart.” I have, in short, been taking lots of time and space apart. Thanks for visiting!

In 2011 I started blogging. What did I learn? I learned that the scholar who blogs can face complementary and conflicting practices in writing, reading, and promotion. Find out more at the Chronicle of Higher Education: “Scholarly Blogging: Once a Tortoise, Never a Hare.”

Well said, Andrea. The tension between finding a wider readership and continuing to pursue deeper and more complex thinking is palpable. I applaud your commitment to both concerns.
