While sorting through a variety of different things on the web, I came across this fine entry from jill/txt about how “blogging makes writing easier.” I don’t know, maybe. I think I write more as a result of blogging, but at the same time, I think I also procrastinate a whole lot more. I mean, in the time I have spent blogging in the last year, I probably could have written a novel. Or an academic book Or a textbook. Or two.
On the other hand, I didn’t write those things, and there’s no evidence that I would have had I not blogged. So at least I wrote something….
Via Clancy Radcliff’s blog, I came across this article from the December 15 New York Times, “A New Forum (Blogging) Inspires the Old (Books).” Now the article is in archive form, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for it when I can go to the library and get it for free…. Anyway, the point of the article is about the connection between blog publishing and “real” publishing, which ought to tie into my CCCCs SIG thing too.
