…at Clicked, MSNBC’s blog on blogging.
WARNINING: If you enjoy reading blog opinion, Clicked is shockingly habit forming. MSNBC’s chat producer Will Femia is a blog fan so he is doing what most people who write blogs do: starting his own. But, as the site explains, there’s another useful purpose to all of this:
The modern news consumer ignores Weblogs and online citizen journalism at his own peril. But not everyone has the time to keep track of what’s going on the Web. With this blog we hope to track the highlights of what’s being discussed online so when news breaks from the Web, we’re ready.
Click on Clicked and you’ll be instantly informed in a nutshell about some of the opinion on the blog, plus get Feria’s own comments (which are quite quotable). Some of these sites (especially blog sites put out by news companies and corporations) come and go. Clicked is going to be around for a long time. Take A Peek and we’re sure you’ll be taking a lot of daily peeks…
