Back To Basics

The New Century Notebook Blog Reverts To Basics!

After an enforced break due to blogger beta problems ... I've had some time to review the whole reason for the being of this blog. To paraphrase some stuff Paul has been writing about ..."the unexamined blog is not worth blogging about"!

This blog started as a way of experienceing blogging ... which I was really new to. Why did I want to experience a new addiction you might ask? Well it is all related to the research I am doing on journal writing and blogging ... all of which will be turned in to a book by the same name as this blog over the Australian Summer 2006-2007.

You can join this research by sending me a response to my blogging and journal writing survey in an old post ... right here ... This is getting to be just about your last chance to contribute now ... The research is going really well and I am learning so much about how OTHER people write their journals and blogs. I love hearing about it so please send me your ideas!

This blog has also been a source of information about journals and blogging in the past ... I am getting a clear message to continue this (and not just from Uni students of mine!).

In between? There is the occassional mad rant and rave about life in the writer's world. There is a need to rant somewhere!

In fact blogging and ranting kind of go hand-in-hand don't you think?

Blogging and ranting go together like...mangos and strawberries!

I have been doing a great deal of examination, both of my blogs and my personal life. Some times it can be pretty tough to look closely at things. Sometimes, I'm not so sure it's worth it.
