Re: Bill's blog rant...

A zillion apologies for 'quoting' myself, but...

I think it's the case that the more high-profile the blogger, gradually, the less transparent the blog, because they have more of a reputation at stake.

Conversely, the less powerful the blogger, the less they have to lose in telling their own story and are thus able to test the limits of freedom of speech to its limits.

Hey, it's a theory...


"Howard Dean’s blog [for his presidential campaign] shows something of the limitations of modern politics. Although Dean does write for the site, it is his political team who post most frequently. Click on the archive of Dean's posts and you'll find most of them are "thank yous" to supporters, and betray little insight into the candidate's experience of his own campaign. Of course, it’s tough to expect a hard-pressed politician to bare his heart regularly online. Instead, Dean’s blog has become a hybrid focus group and cheer-leading entity. But it suggests that that those attendees in Parliament's Grand Committee Room who called for Tony Blair to start a blog would likely be disappointed with the results."

Hi everyone. This is the challenge of writing. You have to be very emotionally engaged in what you?re doing, or it comes out flat. You can?t fake your way through this.
I am from Sierra and learning to write in English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "These are primarily performance fashions, which would be livery in this time."

Waiting for a reply :(, Renata.
