Three aspects of memoirs online
1) Online publication
Traditionally and typically, autobiographies and memoirs have been published as printed monographs (books) or articles in print journals and magazines.
Most articles and books are now available online. That’s not what I mean by online publication, however. What’s more interesting is that the rise of the internet has changed the traditional autobiographical publication practice. A variety of new publication channels have appeared. Blogs became a popular medium for self-presentation in the first decade of the 2000s, followed by micro-blogging platforms like Twitter, and social media like Facebook, Instagram, and even YouTube.
For the moment I’m not sure whether I shall aim for a full book-size memoir for the bookstores and libraries (print or online), or if I shall concentrate on (piecemal) publication on social media instead. Maybe a combination of both?
I’m not yet sure of the choice between book and social media as the main publication format has any particular consequences for my analytical approaches or methodology.
