Bloggers. Can’t live with ’em, can’t erase ’em.
I’ve had a few verbal run-ins with bloggers the past few months, and quite enjoy poking a few sticks at them in my column in The Daily News. That might not stop any time soon, but I figure the best way to figure out what blogging is all about is to try it myself.
I have several areas of interest, so I will comment on three main categories: civic issues, the newspaper industry, and politics. In all three, I will draw on my combined experience in newspapers and in civic politics.
In the third category, I’ll tell some stories about my experience as the mayor of Kamloops from 1999 to 2005. The purpose — to inform people through real-life incidents about how municipal councils work, especially in Kamloops.
Oh, by the way, comments will be most welcome, but not anonymous comments. I put my name to my personal opinions; I think others should do the same.
So, welcome to the Armchair Mayor’s blog.
