Writing about web page http://www.huffingtonpost.com/
The Huffington Post is described by the BBC as:
a new website which takes the form of a "group blog": lots of writers in the same forum. But in this one, all the writers are fabulously, impossibly rich. Established by socialite Ariana Huffington, it's half news, half posts by celebrities including John Cusack, Diane Keaton and Ellen DeGeneres.
I've only just found out about this, and though I've not looked into it, it should make absorbong reading for those with the time to tear away from their revision.
This is part of a new feature being introduced into the online BBC Magazine, the "Weblog Watch", something that might be of interest to keep tabs on in the future, especially with warwick as one of the recently flourishing blogging communities. I guess it's a sign of how quickly the once rare 'blog' is now becoming mainstream. In the BBC's own words…
Many critics claim that blogs have nothing to say and are pure self-indulgence. This new column, Weblog Watch, will be keeping an eye on the blogs and seeing if the criticism is justified.
This is an
accusation, maybe that's too strong a word, it's an opinion that has been formed towards the Warwick blogosphere in the past. I'll be awaiting their decision but I think they won't get a clear-cut answer anytime soon.
