Jersey Blog Beat
I should be starting this baby up soon.
Blogging was something I've kind of taken for granted -- I've done it since college and so have most of my friends. It was like scratching an itch. I didn't appreciate how democratic and even Darwinian the nature of blogging is. Anybody can make a blog and have their voices heard, but adroit bloggers like good ol' Abe see their posts read on constant refresh-dial.
In the aftermath of the Monmouth Blog wars, in which the county's cadre of Republican bloggers were referred to as "terrorists" by their flumoxed party chairman, the roles blogs play in Jersey politics, news and communities became something of great interest to me.
I'll be leaving my thoughts on Monmouth politics to this blog, though. The NJ.com blog is going to look at a wider swath of blogging and technology issues in Jersey and how they affect our cultural climate.
So I hope to post there very shortly and get these wheels a'rollin'.
Live in fear. Or something.
