Blogging as laboratory work
Using a weblog as a kind of routine activity to try out combinations of words, link them to own ideas and comparing them with ideas from other people while trying to produce some new meaning is the basic research method used in the Humanities and the Sciences.
Blogging then is another tool in my Research work. I have known that for a while ago, but it feels nice to write it down in plain English :-) in order to share it with my eventual readers.
And to reaffirm my conviction that this is another one among the many tools I have in order to do my research work.
