The Blogosphere Thanks You, Bob Gibson

Charlottesville Daily Progress columnist Bob Gibson has given the best MSM treatment yet to Virginia’s political blogging phenomenon in “Politics and opinion: a blog delight.” Yes, I confess, I relished the kind words he wrote about Bacon’s Rebellion, but what I found most significant was the way Gibson treated blogging as more than a curiosity. He was willing to credit Bacon’s Rebellion and a growing cohort of other fine Virginia blogs with helping to shape and define a number of ongoing political stories.

Virginia’s blogosphere is still young, still maturing, and it is far from tapping the full potential of digital technology. You’ll see dramatic developments in the Virginia blogging community within just a few months. Blogging will change the face of Virginia politics and public policy. Trust me, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Three most important things about real estate are location, location and location. Three most imporantt things about a artistic or sports performance are practice, practice, practice. Maybe the three most important things for blogging, like the rest of the net, is content, content, content. We’ll see.
