Two weeks ago, I received a message that a reporter from the New York Times wanted to speak to me about my blog.
Was he interested in my fine, sensitive poems? Or perhaps my incisive political commentary?
He was interested in Friday Cat Blogging.
The article is here. Yes, it requires registration -- but you can always make something up, and besides, it's cats.
I think the reporter, Daniel Terdiman (who also writes for Wired News) did a good job (though I have been blogging for ten months, not three) stressing what is most important to me about Friday Cat Blogging: that it brings together folks from all around the web who otherwise would not connect. And, of course, it offers a little relief from what has lately been a heavy dose of seriousness.
I hope those of you who are visiting from the Times will take a minute to visit my main page. There is much more than cats on offer here, including poems, politics, and other minor matters. If you came just for the cats, you will find many cat links here.
