Ladies and Gentlemen<,
After the recent discussion on the AMS-List regarding musicological blogging I found that I was shocked that folks could feel so much passion (both positive and negative) concerning the value of musicological blogging in general. However, I was also left with a feeling that our work isn’t developing as it should or could. To state the problem in other terms, what exactly is it that makes a good musicology blog or a good post? In order to at least progress towards an answer, I propose that we form a musicology blogger’s guild that might allow us to provide some benchmarks, award excellence in blogging, and give us something fun to do at the annual “no-host” party. I propose the awards be called the Blammies, if only because the name sounds fun. What do you all think?
If there are any other bloggers that you think might be interested in this idea, please re-post to them or send them this way!
