Back in February, I wrote, “Perhaps the very nature of blogging is reactive, and those that have made it proactive have moved from blogging to…. what would something proactive be called? Journalism? Something else?” It seems that for some, it may very well be journalism, or at least an amateur version of it. This week, the Boston Globe published an article that focuses on bloggers who have applied for press credentials for the Democratic National Convention. The DNC has said they will give some of the 15,000 press credentials to bloggers who apply. No word yet on whether or not the Republican National Convention will do the same. The deadline to apply for press credentials is May 28, 2004.
Ben, I think you should go for it!
