Blogging - a Contemporary Literary Practice

"DJ´s Krimiblog - a Study of a Contemporary Literary Practice" - this is the title of a paper my daughter wrote in December (she studies comparative literature). After a course on literary culture, she decided to take a closer look at my blog and write a paper on it.

She wants me to send a thank you from her to Bernadette, José and Peter Rozovsky whose blogs she has quoted in the paper. She used their December posts about writers who were new to them to prove that blogging expands your literary horizon.

She got the result today: 12 (the highest Danish grade, corresponding to A).

So nice to see that her taking a risk has been rewarded. Congratulations to her. And she drew an excellent conclusion - in my case blogging about books has done amazing things to my literary horizon (not to mention my bank balance but that's a different paper all together)

Dorte H sagde ...

Thank you, Cathryn. And I am proud that she wants to be seen in public with me (one of the blessings of one´s children growing up).

Vanda Symon sagde ...

Your clever daughter has proven what we already knew - blogging is good for literature, which means we can blow raspberries to those that think we're wasting our time! Blog on, I say!

Dorte H sagde ...

Alyce: it is indeed.

Vanda: yes! And more and more writers figure out that bloggers make a difference.

Like mother, like daughter. What a great idea for a paper, and she must have been good to get the grade she did.
Have been MiA for a whole bunch of weeks, and am spending an evening hoping to catch up now. Apologies for not dropping by for ages.

Dorte H sagde ...

Thank you, Rayna.

And sometimes (most times?) life is more important than blogging so no excuses needed!

Thank you, Care.
