Fallen Bloggers

I’ve recently written a couple of posts about my blog, and while they may be a little self-indulgent, I make no apology for that – blogging is about the things you’re interested in, your life, your passions. However, over the last few months there have been a few news items about bloggers who have felt called to a riskier form of writing, and who have therefore paid the ultimate price, in Mexico yesterday, in Libya and Brazil earlier in the year.  I think it’s worth remembering their stories, and that this hobby that so many of us treasure and enjoy can become a calling that places brave people in danger. I don’t have anything more intelligent or helpful to add, let’s just remember that there are more important things in the blogosphere than page hits and Search Engine Optimisation, and remember how writing can make a difference, to a society or to an individual.
