The NY Times tells us about a protoblogger decides to run for governor and therefore starts blog – I particularly noticed the nature of her preblogging:
[A] few times a week on a blackboard next to the daily drink specials, she recalls, she wrote short rants about whatever was on her mind: a problem in the city, or a new ordinance that she thought unfair. Her messages won her a steady following.
It’s mostly the lesser known candidates for governor in Southern California who have started blogs, but there are scores of them, says the artitcle. And there’s the governor’s wife. (Andrew sent me this link, thanks)
