Product Description


The general election, Charles and Camilla's wedding, the death of the Pope, the Michael Jackson trial, the hunting bill, G8, Live8, the identity card debate, the Downing Street memo, the Olympic bid and the London bombings - 2005 has been a huge year for news. But whereas in previous years it was traditional journalists who helped us understand the stories that shape the world, 2005 was unquestionably the year of the 'blogger'. Bloggers - for the uninitiated - are amateur online journalists who post real-time reports of major (and not-so-major) stories on their websites. Famous bloggers like Belle du Jour and the Baghdad Blogger have already secured lucrative book deals thanks to the quality and vibrancy of their writing. But there are literally tens of thousands of bloggers who have not yet made the move to print. "2005: Blogged" provides a complete round up of the way the blogging community covered the major events of the year. Featuring the very best writing from the rising stars of online journalism, this is by far the most entertaining and opinionated guide to 2005. Tim Worstall is one of the UK's top bloggers and is extremely well respected amongst the blog community.

Tim's blog was widely quoted in the national press for its analysis of the bloggers' response to the bombings of 7th July. From dedicated bloggers to total Internet virgins, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to look back at the big events of 2005, as seen through the eyes of the world's most opinionated writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to the blogosphere 9 Dec 2005
There's a lot of very fine writing here.
The disparate posts come together very well as a review of the year with a somewhat satirical tone overall. It would stand up very well against a similar compilation from the mainstream press.
It's also a great introduction to the blogging phenomenon. If you enjoy the writers here, you can read plenty more, and what's more join in the conversation, on the web.
