The biggest news in blogworld these days is ... itself. Halley Suitt alerted us to this post about the controversy. The question is has there been impropriety where people got paid for blogging. To my mind, the bigger issue is blogging vs. journalism. But I don't think anybody reads blogs with the same mindset as they do a researched, (presumably) fact-checked article in a reputable publication. Something I can enthusiastically agree with, however, is this post from Devin Reams on Blogosphere News. He uses Tom's endorsement of blogging as validation. And the circle is complete, because his post brings you back to our site.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
