Welcome to my new blog. Right now the look is a little rough but that will be changing soon as I get the hang of Movable Type.

I am a doctoral student studying adolescent life in online environments. Hence the ?professional-lurker? title for this site. An academic who studies adolescent sites is a professional-lurker by profession. You sit, you watch, you take notes, you think about all of it, you read what others have written on the subject and lots of related subjects, you think some more, and if you are lucky you come up with something you can write about that is different then what has been written before and you publish.

My professional webpage, shameless self promotion involved in all these links ? just hit one they all go to the same site: Lois Scheidt, Lois Ann Scheidt, and There I post what's new in my academic life. Here I talk about all of it.

Right now I am working on research related to blogs and blogging. I belong to a research team at Indiana University, the Blog Research on Genre or BROG as we like to call it. Our group blog is available at We have a publication that will be out shortly - Herring, S. C., Scheidt, L. A., Bonus, S., and Wright, E. (2004). Bridging the Gap: A Genre Analysis of Weblogs. Proceedings of the Thirty-seventh Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS-37). Los Alamitos: IEEE Press. If you are interested in blogs and blogging take a look at the paper, I think you might find it interesting and useful.
