Politicians need to start blogging

The UK newspaper, The Guardian, suggests today that politicians need to harness the power of blogging.

Politics is losing more than the ability to campaign online. Few young people are interested in politics. Why?

That’s why blogging is so important, not just for politicians, but for all organisations trying to connect with younger people. You need to do it via the Internet.
