1. Hello Gavan,

    My name is Tara Siebarth — I am the web editor for University Affairs magazine.

    This is an excellent blog post. I think it could work very well as a career advice article for our magazine. Please send me an email if you are interested in re-purposing this content. We will provide you with a fee for doing so. :)

    Please let me know if you are interested.


  2. Hey,

    I like this a lot — well thought out. As someone with a personal-academic hybrid blog, I find I often fail to fully inhabit either realm. I thought it would be a sort of feminist approach in that I was always accounting for my own personal narratives in relation to my scholarly work, but really, it feels shallow in many respects. I also got too caught up for a while in the work of a specific online blogging community in speculative realism/object-oriented ontology and have had to stop reading those sites. Too much at this point in my thinking and writing and academic life. I often think of scrapping my blog altogether…

    Oh well, hope you are great!
