Oh yeah

I should be posting, right?

Hmm. . .classes have begun. I’m teaching 111 and my 225 course around the theme of essays and invention. . .we’ll see how things go. So far, so good on both accounts. I’m really starting to think about how blogs might be considered a new form of nonfiction literature, and how that status relates to/influences the essay genre in the twenty-first century. Can a blog post be considered a short essay? Can an entire blog be an ongoing, always changing essay? Ooh, maybe. Or maybe I’m essay-happy.

 

I do think Montaigne would have been a blogger. Bacon, not so much. . .
