It'd been rumored for awhile, and now it's official: Texas Monthly's Paul Burka, who a year ago wrote an article that basically dismissed blogs and blogging, is now himself a blogger. Life is funny sometimes, isn't it? (So is TJ Shroat, filling in for the vacationing Pink Lady.)

I've no intention of getting all schadenfreudy here. My opinion is the more, the merrier, and that changing one's mind when one is obviously wrong about something is a Good Thing that ought to be encouraged, not disparaged. So welcome aboard, Paul Burka. Now that you're feeling right at home, I have the same request of you that I do of the Houston Press: I hope yours will be a true blog, in the sense that you will use it to engage with other Texas bloggers. We've got a pretty interesting and intelligent group in this state. It'd be a shame not to take advantage of it.

Hmmmm. This is interesting. Apparently, everybody's hopping on board the Blog Train these days. Clearly, our sense of timing in our own little corner of the blogosphere is absolutely impeccable.

... But, uh. "True" bloggers? Do we have to pass a test? Are there badges?
