Dreaming of new blogs.
Dan Harper is looking for blogs that get beyond partisan cheerleading and dear-diary confession. He likes place blogs, but would also like to find:
A blog written by a fictional character about his/her fictional life.
A blog by a real person about his/her travels in a fictional place.
A blog of literary or arts reviews (by multiple authors).
A "historical blog," written from the point of view of a historical figure as if s/he were blogging in her/his own era, a sort of blog re-enactment; e.g., a Plimoth Plantation blog, a Civil War soldier's blog, etc.
A blogicization of Dante's Inferno, or Defore's Journal of a Plague Year, etc.
Or best of all, something that's just plain new and different.
As for me, I'm particularly interested in hearing people's visions of multi-author blogs, especially ones that might touch on liberal religious concerns. (Personally, I'm going to go looking for Taize-visitors' blogs.) Any more wish lists out there?
