Useful advice

Reporters Without Borders has released a Handbook for bloggers and cyber-dissidents [PDF], aimed at providing guidance and useful advice to people who want to use their blog to say things their governments would rather they didn't say. It's interesting reading, even for those of us in less threatening environments - there are guides to establishing a blog and blogger ethics, as well as a series of personal accounts from people who use their blogs for something more than simply trading bullshit and posting pictures of their cat.

Unfortunately, it doesn't help you find something to write about when your major subject matter has gone into hibernation...

Think of it as an oportunity to become a (n even more) rounded person.

I hardly think comfort eating is an appropriate solution.

Did you get to the last page:
"WITH THE SUPPORT
FROM
THE FRENCH FOREIGN MINISTRY
AND THE
FRENCH CAISSE DES DÉPÔTS ET CONSIGNATIONS"

Do you think they have another handbook coming up on how to express yourself with high explosives...

(Just taking the piss - it's a good book and I'm sure that all the proxy techniques therein haven't been cracked by the DGSE).
