Now with David Brancaccio - about Blogs


Now with David Brancaccio


Yesterday, I met with local bloggers and found them to be as diverse as blogs themselves. Awesome.

Can bloggers keep their mojo? Can you trust your hometown blogs? Can you be a blogger? Will you?

Like all things, blogs are good, bad and downright ugly.

The current controversy about whether bloggers are journalists is a moot point, as far as I'm concerned. The theory that one reads only the blogs with which one agrees is probably true to a degree. Feeling out of step is fairly common in this new environment and searching for blogs that resonate with one is not a bad thing, imho. Obviously, one wouldn't agree with everything that was written and good dialogue can often take place. Oftentimes, ideas worth mainstream notice surface.

It occurs to me that while some readers prefer Newsweek, others are committed to Time. Magazines and newspapers are probably as biased as bloggers and with fake news surfacing on most channels it's welcome relief to find blogs and concrete references.

May you find or write the type you seek.

I really enjoy your photo. I have a collection of photography I call "The Beauty of Decay". It will forever be a work in progress.

Sue,

It was a pleasure to meet and talk with you at Blogfest IV.

Thank you for posting the photo of the cement plant on your blog. My parents and I spent many a day fishing between there and Cape Horn and the slide.

I actually caught fish in that local, Bill...Did you?

Aside from that, yes it wa a delight to meet with another person that is willing to step up and be counted. A big hand for Sue...
