BLOG EXTRACT – LabforCulture recently set out to investigate the state of cultural blogging in Europe. The aim was to find out more about who cultural bloggers in Europe actually are, what they’re talking about, which audiences and communities are being engaged and how sustainable they are. I was one of the interviewees…

Cultural blogging is not (yet) a well-known category within the blogosphere. LabforCulture wanted to find out more about the role of blogging in the cultural sector generally and what it means for LabforCulture specifically. They asked Annette Wolfsberger from Virtueel Platform, the Dutch sector institute for e-culture, to interview cultural bloggers across Europe. The results of research will be published in a short paper.

The focus of the interviews was to look at individual European blogs that take contemporary and popular culture as their main starting point. This ‘viral exploration’ includes a series of in-depth interviews with bloggers from the United Kingdom, Poland, Italy and the Netherlands, among others, with an attempt to map cultural blogs more widely across Europe.
