Which blogger hasn't started their blog with the intention of gifting their knife-sharp commentary to the public on a regular basis? And which blogger has dismally failed to live up to those intentions? Or maybe it's just me? Anyway, this blog begins with no such ambition and here's what it won't do: it won't appear weekly, it won't always be new material and it won't always be written by me. However, this blog on thinking three ways may just manage to provide multiple threads of reflection and comment on topics relevant to www.thinkthreeways.weebly.com and most importantly, you, the reader! I'm starting this blog with a piece I wrote for The Sociological Review in 2018 - seems a long time ago now and certainly it captures an early stage in the expansion of my academic practice to graphic social science.
