Denmark’s ex-Prime Minister has really gotten into weblogging! I was going to just quote some of his latest post, which is of course written in Danish, but I think for the benefit of mankind I’ll translate it into English instead:
And I’m still a beginner. My weblog doesn’t have any smart functions – yet. I’ve become addicted to this communication form, and I’m nearly ready to take the next step. Soon you’ll be able to add comments to my weblog. As I go along I’ll also link to other weblogs I find interesting. And this will please experienced bloggers: my weblog will soon have a so-called rss-feed, so it will be easier to keep track of my scribbling. (16/4/03)
For some reason the thought of a staid old politician experiencing such familiar exhileration with a new medium strikes me as amazingly – cute. Loveable. I’m not sure that’s how politicians actually want to be seen, but there you go.
