The Real Power of Blogs
If you haven't been following it, there has been a fire raging in the foothills above Sierra Madre for the past couple of days. I've been really impressed with the coverage of the fire on The Foothill Cities Blog.
It must be remembered that bloggers are not being paid to do this. However, the contributors of the FCB have done an very admirable job in giving the community (and the wider community as well) a very good picture of what's going on. This coverage is so much better than any of the local media has given because it is being reported by those who are directly affected.
I salute the contributors at the Foothill Cities Blog. They show that blogging is more than just a bunch of complainers venting at their local governments. They ARE concerned citizens, who like most concerned citizens, rally together in times of trouble.
