For my research, I’ve set up a separate blog. Sometimes blogposts will appear both at www.theappealoftheunreal.com and at www.deephistoriesfragilememories.com.
The research blog is made for several reasons: the posts collect all that has to do with the research, it functions as a reminder, and as a way to communicate progress and findings. Please keep in mind this blog is a work in progress.
