One of my very first posts (January 3) told of my favorite prefix "meta". There I used it to discuss "meta-reading" (reading about reading). I am thinking that with Julie Powell's book I have come full circle, and am now "meta blogging" (or blogging about blogging). Powell uses the prefix herself when writing about blogging about a phone call she received about her blog. "Here I was writing my blog, when I get a phone call from a major media outlet concerning their desire to do a piece about me and my blog. Which phone call I immediatey proceeded to write about in my blog. This is when it occured to me that things were starting to get a little meta."
