jonI’m a big fan of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show (8.30 on More 4- daily, surprisingly enough). Stewart blends political acuity with sharp comedy and no little cynicism. He declares openly how much he will miss George W Bush’s malapropisms and was assured this evening that his show must end as US politics will soon cease to be a source  of general merriment.

Anyway on this evening’s show was Arianna Huffington (can’t seem to embed the video clip)  (of the Huffington Post, whatever that is). She was promoting a book about blogging. She is a self confessed evangelist of the form. The message was ‘just write’; don’t analyse too much; write as if emailing; share your passions, whether for ideas or cheese.

I decided to do as she said.
