Fixated: Topic-specific Blogging

A session at BANANA 2

Saturday 26th February, 2011

3:00pm to 4:00pm (PST)

While some bloggers will cover Asian Americana from A to Z, others choose to concentrate on a particular niche, interest, or theme. From food to fatherhood, erotica to living Lao’d, many Asian American bloggers are converging online around targeted topics. How does the blogosphere build community around a distinct yet shared passion or issue? Do bloggers feel compelled to highlight or de-emphasize their “Asian American experience”? How do bloggers stand out when writing about a popular subject, such as food or parenting? This panel will explore these questions, as well as how bloggers’ identities – ethnic and otherwise — may or may not intersect with and influence their perspectives on specific topics.
