'I am proud to call myself a blogger'

· Journalism

Dan Froomkin gets it (CJR Campaign Desk interview):

I am proud to call myself a blogger. Not all blogs need to be all blog things. Typically, a blog is updated around the clock; mine isn’t. Typically a blog is unedited; mine is edited. Typically, a blog includes a lot of personal opinion; mine doesn’t.
But the best blogs have voice, and mine does. The best blogs point out fascinating things elsewhere on the Internet; that’s my bread and butter. The best blogs thrive on interaction with readers; and I sure do.
