We are especially interested in the experiences, theories and perspectives of those who actually blog. We are looking for longer theoretical essays and shorter statements/manifestos about blogging--including pieces that have already been posted on your blogs. We are also soliciting reviews of books about blogging and your favorite weblogs.

Feel free to propose other topics to the editors: Michael Benton (University of Kentucky; editor for Reconstruction; founder of the blog Dialogic) and Nick Lewis (founder of the Progressive Bloggers’ Alliance and the collective blog NetPolitik). Send all queries, proposals and manuscripts to
