textrapolis has an interesting post on various Blogger Manifestos.
He points to Andrew Sullivan's piece on Why online weblogs are one future for journalism.
And also to David Weinberger's manifesto parody:
Life is uncensored, but my clients and my Mom may be reading my blog.
You have no right to judge me, but judging you is totally fun.
I love writing about other people's lives when it makes my life look good...
And also lists Sean Carton's Bad Blogger Manifesto:
dealing with them and the ugliness they bring isn't worth the effort.
you, pay me.
In other news, David Weinberger comes clean with the truth: he is not keeping up with your blog.
