Not Your Grandmother's Blog

I just had to pass on this article on the front page of The New York Times Style section today about blogging titled, "The Rising Stars of Gossip Blogs". Read it here: www.nytimes.com/2010/04/01/fashion/01gossips.html

It says that, "The lines between 'reporter' and 'blogger', 'gossip' and 'news' have blurred almost beyond distinction. No longer is blogging something that marginalized editorial wannabes do from home, in a bathrobe, because they haven't found a 'real' job. Blogging now is a career path in its own right, offering visability, influence, and an actual paycheck." The article shows pictures and profiles of nine, 20-something bloggers who are poised to make it big in the cyberspace of gossip blogging.

O.K. folks, what about your good old fashioned, pet blogs? Why isn't what we talk about interesting to all of cyberspace and worthy of a ( O.K. my) picture in The Times? I've got lots to say, dang it, and it might actually be more interesting than celebrity gossip. What do you think?

P.S. I wonder if they get to go to a 2 day conference at a luxurious hotel-see www.blogpaws.com - eat your heart out ya whippersnappers!

Hi Bocci!

I do indeed have a Bark Obama t-shirt and you can get one too!


I also had a Kanines For Kerry shirt that I wore during the Republican Convention in New York during the last election. Whenever someone would ask Mom about it, she'd respond "Even a little dog knows what a Bush is good for!"

Your pal in politics,
