well, now that i’ve actually pondered some of the things i’m going to actually cover for this thesis, i’m going to have to get down to business. i believe that it’s important to connect with your potential research participants and subjects in more than just a superficial manner, and i’ve made some great friends out of my previous fieldwork endeavours. the only problem is, now i’m a) on the other side of the world, making old contacts a bit harder to reach, and b) doing the majority of my research online with people i’ll never meet.
and so, i’m going to make this blog a place for us to connect, shoot the breeze, and to debate and/or make fun of my various insane ideas. i’ve revamped the sidebars and links sections and hope to have a new layout at some point as well, so here’s to the future of this blog!
and here’s hoping i make it out of this thesis (mostly) intact.
my next post will hopefully detail a few of the things i want to cover over the course of my writing. ’til then!
