Tim Stretton, whose The Dog of the North is forthcoming from MNW next July, has thrown aside his skepticism and good common sense about how to spend his time and launched his own blog, named (like his website) ::Acquired Taste. It's his first day amongst the chattering classes and he's already posted three times, so you ought to go take a look before you have to run to catch up.
(And, no, I don't know what's up with the "::" symbol. But I'd advise against staring at it for too long. You never know.)
