Blog On 

Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism aired on the ABC last Tuesday. During the end credits, alternatives to the passive acceptance of network news and current affairs are mentioned, including community broadcasting.

Yay for community broadcasting, thought I. And then I thought about blogging and its role in helping people to share their own news and opinions. Which reminded me of the Committee to Protect Bloggers, which is campaigning for the release of imprisoned Iranian bloggers. I came across their blog only recently thanks to the Blogger dashboard.

The site is a reminder that not all bloggers are free to share their views. For those of us who can, it's only fair that we appreciate our freedom and continue.

If you're in Melbourne and you write or blog, you might like to check out the St Kilda Writers Festival.There'll be a session on blogging at the St Kilda Town Hall at 10.30am Sunday.
