If you ever thought blogs about the daily minutiae of life were dull…

Have a read of Sarah Burnes blog on the Paris Review website. Her culture diary is a blow-by-blow account of a week in the life of one literary agent and it’s compelling reading.

Seems to me to be a really wonderful way to tell a story and share interesting links and insights.

So perhaps those self-indulgent blogs (this very blog being a perfect example) are the beginning of a new literary tradition.
