Frist blogs, but who would know? Patrick Ruffini has posted a great guide to congressional blogging and following up on his (and my)
comments about how Bill Frist should blog, Patrick observes that the
Senate majority leader (and my senator) actually is blogging, but no
one probably knows it because his “dispatches” are going into his website’s “Press” area.
As I volunteered (in that earlier post)
to help the blogging efforts of any of the Republicans or Democrats who
represent me, here’s a suggestion to Sen. Frist’s staff:
Set up a blog (even on a hosted blog service if you can’t get those
senate.gov IT folks to download wordpress or something — geez, you
would think a word from him would have them hopping)
2. Copy and paste into it all that stuff your boss is writing
3. Make sure it’s available via RSS
4. Experiment with allowing comments, or at least trackbacks
5. There’s not a 5
Wait. Here’s an even better idea than listening to my ideas. Ask Patrick Ruffini to come over for a visit.
I was on Capital Hill recently, and he was nice enough to get
together with me for breakfast. Heck, we even went to a party together.
I know if he’d spend time visiting with me, he’d be glad to do the same
And since he was the webmaster and blogging guru for the Bush campaign, I’d think it would be sort of interesting to hear his
Just an idea.
