- March 7, 2006 - 0 Comments

In one of our first entries on this blog over a year ago, I mentioned that “this Internet thing seems to really be taking off…” Blogging, it seems, is no different. Today, you may have read about Wal-Mart’s efforts to engage bloggers in The New York Times to help with their PR efforts.I also just came across this quote from Silicon Valley U.S. Representative Anna Eshoo (D-Palo Alto) in today’s National Journal’s Technology Daily People column that I thought was interesting enough to pass along. She is quoted as saying: “If Thomas Paine was alive today, he wouldn’t be a radical pamphleteer; he’d be a blogger at” High praise for the blogosphere, indeed.To be sure, the blogosphere can be a cacophonous place, but with originality, substance and consistency a blog can be be very effective tool for getting your message to your audience.
