Is blogging important?

Slugger O’Toole has got a copy of the article in the Sunday Tribune by Matt Maggee where I was quoted:

The down side of the non-mainstream nature of the blogs, though, is that they do not operate the same checks and balances to ensure accuracy and accountability. ‘The checks and balances of blogs are entirely horizontal. Blogs check themselves in most cases,’ said Gavin Sheridan who runs Gavin’s Blog. ‘The more well known your blog is, the more aware you have to be of accuracy.’
