Adolescent blog audience's presentation

I have spent most of today reading adolescent blogs looking for exemplars for my conference presentation. I feel like I have read hundreds blogs today, when the number is in the 30's at this point. I keep thinking of the wonderful title of Suzanne Bunkers & Cynthia Huff's book "Inscribing the Daily," so many of these blogs are doing just that inscribing stories of their days. Sadly taken individually or even in small groups, the stories of days are usually not captivating reading.

I have five exemplars to find, if possible, to illustrate Kristin Langellier's five types of audiences for personal narrative: As a witness testifying to the experience; as a therapist unconditionally supporting emotions; as a cultural theorist assessing the contestation of meanings, values, and identities in the performance; as a narrative analyst examining genre, truth or strategy; and as a critic appraising the display of performance knowledge and skill (Langellier, p. 210). I have located blogs to illustrate four of the five audiences, but the narrative analyst type may be one that is not commonly addressed by adolescent bloggers. The search goes on.

Once the exemplars are added to the Power Point file the presentation will be completed. I have to work on the discussion text for my notes but that doesn't go on the slides. I will post the slide show on my webpage, with a notation here, when it is completed.
