The Power of Bloggers
We can say whatever we want, whenever we want. We 'own' freedom of speech. We cannot be fired or reprimanded..or considered traitors - or be told we are being disloyal or acting in a manner which is unbecoming of a lady (or gentleman) - or practicing the act of insubordination. We don't have any favors to call in. We decide how much income we will make. We give ourselves raises and write our own pay cheques. (however big or small) We own it. We have taken back the power of the people. The democracy of journalism lives inside the blogging universe. We don't have editors or producers changing our words, our thoughts, our beliefs - our voice. We censor ourselves; if we want to. (Although I wouldn't encourage that - blogging allows for freestyle thinking and ideas. Go with it.)
