Tonight I started a new blog, www.acknowledgers.wordpress.com as a way of sharing some love for acknowledgements pages! As a student I spent many hours reading other people’s acknowledgements pages in a desperate attempt to provide a light diversion from the task in hand and also as a reminder that I had some opportunity to express myself, outwith the rules and regulations of academic writing.
The plan for the blog is that it will provide an opportunity for people to share their pages, or to write one if they haven’t had any cause to do so to date. To kick things off I’ve included my own, rather embarrassingly sentimental page (I was *extremely* tired, stressed and emotional by the time I finally got that far) #dontjudgeme which you can read here. If you’d like to know more about the thinking behind the blog the about page is here.
Please spread the word and let me know if you have anything you’d like acknowledged. For now I’ll leave you with a quote I borrowed from TSElliot.
“We shall not cease from exploration
and the end of our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time” T.S.Elliot, Little Gidding
