This is a great article on blogging by Andrew Sullivan I chanced upon yesterday. I’ve been thinking a lot about the blog as a genre and he has a lot of good stuff to say on it. I agree that the blog is “enabling writers to express themselves in ways that have never been seen or understood before. Its truths are provisional, and its ethos collective and messy. Yet the interaction it enables between writer and reader is unprecedented, visceral, and sometimes brutal. And make no mistake: it heralds a golden era for journalism.”
Worth taking a look. Certainly a good read on a Saturday.
