What's in a label?
I’ve recently introduced the concept of labels to the blog (see the list on the right and down a bit) and am interested to chart my changing focus over the time I’ve been writing it. I began by blogging about the minutiae of living in a group flat in Grey Lynn and the dubious joys of living with a bunch of single people in their twenties. After a substantial hiatus, I moved to reportage on internet dating of a reasonably intimate nature, and have now moved again, this time towards commentary on party politics. The only thing linking all the parts together, aside from my rambunctious writing style and fondness for compound sentences, is a continuing attention to both power and gender and a willingness to mention sex, or at least allude to it. I’ve always thought that the personal is political, ever since I was a little, baby feminist. So – any linky love that I get from people on kiwiblogblog (props for the inclusion on your heroes and homies blog-list guys) may result in some initial confusion over content, but I’d urge you to read and enjoy anyway. This blog definitely dresses to the left, no matter what it’s on about.
