The phenomenon that is online journalkeeping has stretched from one corner of the globe to the other and spanned a dizzying array of cultures and languages. The purpose of The Blog Project is to capture a textual snapshot of sorts. I'll be collecting quips, quotes, tidbits, and interesting stories, and along the way profiling selected journalkeepers. The end result is to be a book that gives readers a glimpse into the world of online journalling, but along the way a website will be built to record the process. This is necessary, as the project will go well beyond the realm of just LiveJournalers.
