Over the winter I read the blog-turned-into-a-novel Julie and Julia, and, since the launch of the ACET blog, I’ve been very interested in the wide variety of blogs that are available on the internet. I currently subscribe to quite a few, including Mrs. Q’s “School Lunch Project,” the Wiktionary “Word of the Day,” and my own guilty pleasure, “Babes Love Baseball.”
I have also discovered that many of our lawmakers have embraced blogging as a way to keep their constituents informed. I was able to find a blog that summarizes the recent activities of Minnesota’s House and blogs for my representatives to Minnesota’s House and Senate. My congressional representative also has a blog, but Senators Franken and Klobuchar don’t (you can subscribe to their email newsletters though).
