"Why should journalists blog?"

Chris Cobler of the Greeley Tribune was completely on target with a recent column he wrote on why journalists should blog.

I've written about Chris before. He was a recipient of a 2005-2006 Nieman fellowship and spent 10 months at Harvard University focusing on the future of journalism in the online age. After returning from Harvard, Chris, who served as the paper's editor since 1995, was named the Greeley Tribune's first Interactive Division publisher.

I admire Chris' efforts and that of John Robinson, the editor of the News & Record in Greensboro, North Carolina, who pointed me to Chris' column in a post on The Editor's Log that addresses the issue of blogs and ethics.
