It’s good to welcome a new blogger onto the scene – Bermuda Independent. He/she is keeping anonymous for the moment apparently, which is fine.
There is a good blogging community on the Island at the moment (we could probably hold a decent sized Christmas party!) which is great. It puts more and more opinions out there, it means more and more people are being held accountable and more questions are being asked.
Blogging and bloggers are a good anti-dote and addition to traditional media which are often straight-jacketed by every day demands to fill space, or air time, and cover what needs to be covered despite ever diminishing resources.
Editorials are, also, a lone voice.
So cherish Bermuda’s blogging family – and join it.
As it grows and matures, it will undoubtedly play a key role in shaping opinions, hopefully it will grow into an alternative form of journalism and a good source of information.
It is also great fun…….
