‘Blogging are not exactly journalists, which isa mistake many people make. They expectus to be dispassionate and unemotionalabout topic such as occupation and war.That objective lack of emotion is impossiblebecause a blog in itself stems from passion– the need to site for hours at one’scomputer, slouched over the keyboard,trying to communication ideas, throughs,fears, and frustrations to the world’ – Iraqi Blogger Riverbend, 2006
