Recently, Postmodern Sass wrote Ich bin kein Blogger, calling out an argument that there is no such thing as blogging. I think the evidence is against her, but then again, Sass herself has been doing something with the form that I haven’t seen anywhere else. Her blog is filled with extended, interlinked, multi-part stories; nothing new about that. But every time she posts a story, she goes back to the previous episode and updates it to add an “in the next chapter...” link. Latch onto a few of the stories in her Year One Archives and see how they run backward and forward. I think this is a good idea and quite a few of the multi-part blog narratives out there, including some of my own series, would have benefited from richer linkage.
