THANKS TO DG: just back from fascinating chat with DG of Diamond Geezer. Although he has only been blogging for six months, DG has already caught the attention of other London bloggers. I think its a good read, check it out.

LINKS EFFECT: interesting post over at Diamond Geezer. To celebrate his 8000th visitor, DG has listed from which blogs his traffic has come. The ability to survey the circulation of one's weblog continues to fascinate me.

HIPHOP NATION: I know I must be late on the scene, but just been checking out the communal blog for Hiphop wireless blogging. Does anyone use the Hiphop device on their T-Mobile service for blogging?

Tom has a fascinating post about the development of marketing and PR in the blogosphere. In particular, the activities of Richards Interactive and their attempt to use weblogs as a market research took took my eye.

THANKS TO BRIAN: just back from followup interview with Brian. Since we talked last, Brian has got two more blogs; one focusing on education commentary and the other on culture commentary. I especially enjoyed discussing the process Brian describes on his culture blog of trying to work out what this weblog is going to be about; and the tips on writing he provides. Brian suggests that 1] it is important to work out which readers you are targeting, and 2] what you want to say to them. Brian's discussion intrigued me because as academics anthropologists rarely explicitly reflect on who their readership is [in fact as Brian pointed out, this is in part because they feel they already know the answer; the same is not necessarily the same for bloggers]. Check the two blogs out. Thanks again Brian.

THANKS TO CHRIS: yesterday afternoon I met up with Chris of Blogosphical Investigations. It was fascinating to talk with someone who only posts occasionally and who therefore has a quite different perspective on the impact of blogging on libertarian activism. Thanks again Chris.

My blog, my blog on blogging

Me
I am a social anthropologist working at the University of Surrey, but conducting research on the culture of web logging in London. Since August 2001, I have been reading web logs and interviewing members of the UK blogging community. AnthroBlog is first and foremost my web log, but it also a site where I hope to explore ongoing issues and themes of fieldwork. I welcome any comments or inquiries from UK web loggers interested in being involved.contact me
