In today's mail, I received a book I learned about after class started -- but which is still worth our consideration. In late May, Cory Doctorow recommended that I check out Suzanne Stefanac's Dispatches from Blogistan: A Travel Guide for the Modern Blogger.
Now that I have the book in front of me, it appears to be a blogger's book about blogging -- and not in the sense of what tools to use and how... but how to think about and approach the practice of blogging. I plan to dip into it soon, but in general, it seems worth recommending. If you want to know why people blog, as well as about the different ways people do so, this text could be right up your alley.
Worth a look!
