A blogger on blogging

My editor just told me he might want me to work on a story on blogging. Sounds good, for all the obvious reasons. The only thing is, the Indian media has already covered the topic a fair bit in the past few days, after waking up to the impact of the Tsunami Help blog. (Actually, come to think of it, most of the coverage has been by The Indian Express, with two big stories and of course the edit piece by Amit Varma a couple of days ago.) So I'll need to find a fresh angle, plus speak to people other than the ones who have already been profiled, like Rohit Gupta, Peter Griffin and the redoubtable Hurree Babu.

Meanwhile, if you're a blog virgin read this: A Blogger on Blogging, from the Maud Newton site - it might help you understand why we do what we do. If you're not a blog virgin, read it for affirmation that you're not alone in the universe (right, like you didn't know that already...)
