Taking blogging seriously

Via DPF, I learn that the government is now treating bloggers as journalists and accrediting them for the budget lockup. This is good news. Most of us are a long, long way from doing anything remotely resembling journalism, but some occasionally make a serious effort, and I think it should be encouraged. Taking bloggers seriously and giving them media access encourages bloggers to take it seriously and gives the blogosphere the option of being something other than a sewer.

Unfortunately, DPF had a meeting - but Jordan Carter has taken advantage of the opportunity, and will be posting on the budget once he is released.

Speaking of how the government is taking blogging seriously, NRT commenters may be interested in giving some considered feedback on the possibilities of govt. blogging here.
