BBC News blogging

You may remember I mentioned when we were talking about the press and blogging that the BBC had their own bloggers whom they also publish on their website and encourage comments from the public.

Follow BBC blogging on the road to check out how it makes for a different kind of news story.

Somehow it being blogging seems to licence the writer to use a friendlier, more personal, style of writing. It also encourages discussion and you'll see pretty soon plenty of comments at the bottom. I wonder whether this really counts as a blog anymore now that it appears directly off the main BBC news website?
It's also an interesting alternative angle on the election results with particular reference to the Guardian's seemingly counter-productive effort to sway Ohio voters.
