We will in a world on constant and interrupted conversation mode online and offline….
working on this blog post – will finish it later…
From my post to Radha ki Betiyaan pvt blog:
Okay – even though everyone [on RkB] almost is on facebook and some are on twitter – and several of you may have individual blogs. And we have once again started mass emailing each other.
This is still a different way of being, communication in this “space” we call Radha ki Betiyaan.
I am returning to posting and getting a sense of how I feel as I post in each of my many blogs – or some.
So I blogged some research notes on my livejournal – that only a. has an account on amongst all of you – and has access to when I set it to a certain type of private post setting.
I will go blog again on my cyberdiva.org blog and other spaces (all semester my students and I have been on tumblr.com because we are class blogging there).
Facebook allows different kinds of interactions – scattered and sudden and on impulse even. Twitter allows me to be very very scattered with no dialogue until I or someone else on my twitter list chooses to (similar to facebook status responses – but not with such a potentially large audience – so its not that kind of theater).
I’ve noticed that many many in P’s generation and S’s generation have a custom of keeping public blogs. The public theatricality of bloggling, facebook and twitter (and I am not even getting into youtube here because I speak only of written text) subconsciously shaping their way of being…
Add to this mix the act of posting and typing via Iphone interface.
thinking aloud and ending abruptly as always with my thoughts in-progress (and this is part of the website culture that I started out in since 1990s and that continues now in blogger culture)…
I have felt the need to disappear from the public blogosphere for the last several months.
Not because I have given up the idea of blogging or that I have not had thoughts to blog about.
Nor is it because I was shying away from public online spaces – I have been tweeting and facebooking quite avidly. But my etsy and ravelry were comparatively slow too – and my room of stash and handloom is sitting unattended as well.
I have had a lot happening research wise and personal life wise and will get back to a bit of regular blogging after I am done with more writing and reading deadlines.
