A post worth reading

Since the demise of Iain Dale there has perhaps been a lack of interaction amonsgt bloggers, and a reduction in the tendency to cross post or flag up other people's posts.

As I hardly ever did that, I can hardly complain.

But I do intend to start doing it.

So let me recommend this post by Sand Monkey in relation to the tensions in Egypt right now. I have no way of being able to verify what he says, but much of it has the sound of truth about it from things I've heard from other sources.

I might not be the enthusiastic secularist Sand Monkey is ( in the UK is secularism that is oppressive, rather than a dominant religion ), but the points are worth reading a reflecting on.

The post is Offensive ( the title - not in my view the contents ).

Well worth a read - and its such a different take from the offical line you get via the BBC etc.

There is one new site with a lot of interaction between bloggers.

Despite the demise of Iain Dale, the interactions between bloggers has continued unabated, only Dale's little claque has suffered from the lack of exposure he gave them.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that his claque represented the blogosphere ... which is continuing to grow very healthily wihtout him.
