Terry Wassal asks ‘would C Wright Mills have kept a blog?

Terry Wassal asks if C Wright Mills would have kept a blog. Based on the intellectual craftsmanship piece he claims the answer is likely to be yes. That’s a relief. I can see Wassal’s point, blogging does seem to fit with Mills’ outline for living sociology and for publicly exploring the sociological imagination. I’ve been doing this for a few months now (I think this is about my 98th post) and I’m not sure yet. But it does seem to work as a file for interesting things I come across as much for expressing my own ideas. So it does at least seem to fit with Mills’ suggestions about keeping folders and files. The good thing is that this folder is open for others to use. It means that some of the backstage of the practice of sociology is more visible rather than just it’s finished products (I suppose that this is a good thing).
