There has been from time to time fierce discussion here and on other NI blogs about what makes a blog and what doesn’t. Elsewhere this kind of discussion as taken second place to what individual bloggers can actually do. This week as the US Republican convention is being blogged just like the Democrats. Like last time, even the BBC is getting involved! Reason has substantially supplemented its blog team from last time out. The New Republic magazine’s blog is there too. The Cyberjournalist has a comprehensive list of bloggers by political allegiance.
