I am very impressed by the blogs being created by this class. Blogging is not for everyone but it is a tool that is becoming very popular. Many of the talk radio shows, etc. are looking to the blogosphere for breaking news rather than the traditional media (newspapers, tv). A couple things that make blogs so powerful is the ability to "publish" news in small short bytes at any point in time. This allows you to get information out quickly, not having to wait until the next newspaper is published, etc. This also allows you to be the author of the news. Sometimes this is referred to as a spin doctor. It is powerful to be in control of, at least a portion, of what is being said about a topic. You might not continue as a blogger regularly but you at least see how this tool can be used. You should also search out some blogs on topics you are interested in. Technorati is a good place to start your search. Take care.
