Ok, so here goes nothing...
Hi, my name is Scott Nowson and I am a a student at The University of Edinburgh. I am planning on spending the summer working on studying blogs, and so I decided to start a blog of my own. The reasons for this are two-fold:
1) - If I am going to study blogs, i should really know a little more about how they work. The best way to do this is to do a blog of my own.
2) - I felt that the participants in my work (oh yes, I'm going to be asking people for help at some point) might be interested in how the project is progessing. This isn't a blog of blogs, it's a blog on blogs. so to speak.
So there you go. I can't reveal too much at this time, until I have everything ready, but I will say that I am looking at writing style within diary-style blogs. The plan is to post here with the progress I am making, to be part of the blogging community I am studying, and it can advertise my experiment. So my reasons for this blog have become, live, as I write, three-fold. I really should think these things through.
