Maud Newton: A Blogger on Blogging

This essay describes with grace and self deprecating wit what is captivating, and engrossing, about blogging: the magnetism of informal, generous, hospitable prose characteristic of many blogs.

Enough...Hazel, our kitten, needs tending. She keeps fighting with Gia, our older tabby. Jay Leno, a few feet away...on the inauguration: "So what is "pomp"...is it a fat pimp?" Good night....
