The Biggest Blogger?
One blogger speculates on what might have been:
What if G.K. Chesterton had a blog? What I mean is, what if the great journalist, wit, historian, theologian, and broadcaster were alive today? Would he embrace the new technologies and the opportunities they afford to reach a new and wider audience? Would he have a blogspot site? I think so. He certainly took advantage of radio in its pioneer days--becoming one of the most popular broadcasters at the BBC. No doubt, he would have made quite a good natured fuss over the complexity of the hardware and the software--can't you just see him cajoling Dorothy Collins to hurry up and get his iMac upgraded to OSX so that he could crank out his daily quota of blurbs, vignettes, quips, stories, verses, and columns? But, he would have done it, I am convinced, one way or another. LINK
