Pet blogging

The Dallas Morning News has a pet blog. No, really. And you know what? Looking at the content, which includes a plea for help in finding a lost dog, I think this is a pretty good idea for a newspaper-based blog. Done in a smart way, it'll be small bits of stuff, including some time-sensitive info, the sort of thing that isn't enough to flesh out a full column and/or is already out of date by publication time. Given a choice between that and this, I'll take the pet blog any day. Now if they could just add links to individual entries...

The Chronicle needs to do Whine and Dine as a blog. I'd tune in from New York for that!

Damn fine idea. Not that they'll listen, of course. But yeah, that's exactly the sort of thing that a newspaper could do with a blog that would work as a blog.

It's a good idea, but how about allowing more interaction with comments?
