This was a really good analysis of blogs as a genre. I don’t have anything to add, other than to post this to remind myself to look at it later when writing my paper, in case I want to draw on it (which I probably will). Perhaps my relunctance to write more on this essay comes from sitting in front of my iBook for six hours.
