Blogfluence

I'm not exactly what you would call an "ambitious" blogger. I started this partly as an outlet for my opinions, partly to practice my writing. It was never about fame, glory, or money.

I bring this up because one of the bloggers I regularly read has something interesting on his page.

Captain Ed wrote yesterday about a university research study showing that laser printers could be responsible for unsafe levels of particulate emissions. He didn't dwell long on the science, but fretted that it could mean trouble once the more litigious among us get ahold of the news.

I find myself jealous because Ed was contacted by Hewlett-Packard and asked for a chance to publicly respond to the study . . . on his blog. That's cool.

Of course, many of the other bloggers I read make occasional appearances on Fox News, so it's not like this kind of exposure is unusual. Again, I didn't start blogging so I could get that kind of recognition, but how neat would that be?

I liked this post! I get little jealousies, too. . .
