Blog for a living

What? How do I get in on this deal?
Veteran politicians more familiar with turntables and typewriters are enlisting twentysomething computer whiz kids to help them brave the digital world of blogs, podcasts and the Web as they look to connect directly with voters.
Consider Ari Rabin-Havt, 27, who blogs for a living as a staffer to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., 66. Rabin-Havt's duties include watching the blogosphere for what's being said about his boss and others, and helping manage the blog and other Web-based activities for Reid.
Former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner, a Democrat who is considering a presidential run, recently added a professional blogger to his staff.
Although on second thought, would this fit in with my goal of being a productive member of society? Hmm...I suppose it's possible...I'll have to think about that.

This is probably going to be the hot profession of the new millenium. I just have a question, do you have to blog their thoughts, or do you get to blog yours?

You'd have to blog theirs. Stinks, but when it's your job, how can you complain too much?

Think of it as being like a speech writer. You love to write, you get paid for it, but you're representing someone else.

Hmm. I wonder if you'd be able to link to your own blog for juxtaposition. It might be worth it...
