Autoethnography as Pot Noodle

Trying to avoid writing autoethnography as the academic equivalent of a Pot Noodle.  I want something intellectually nutritious, filling and fulfilling.  

I am also mindful of the risks of autoethnography becoming part of a narcissistic navel-gazing ‘selfie’ culture, becoming ‘mesearch’ instead of research,   and self-aggrandizement.
