"In the US especially, blogs have actively been used for political purposes. For example, Garett Graff was probably the first blogger to be given a daily White House pass based on his blogging of Washington news media.Commentary Singapore was, of course, this blog's previous name. Strangely, I am described as being dedicated to topics related to "travel, culture, language and technology." Looking at my past 20 posts or so, I can hardly see any post focusing on such topics. I would think that a more accurate description would be to say that this blog focuses on "politics, law, media and civil rights."
Singaporean bloggers tend to focus more on personal and daily issues. Some of the more popular local blogs include Sandralicious and Xiaxue. However, there are a few which are dedicated to topics related to travel, culture, language and technology such as Commentary Singapore and Singapore Ink. This in itself is an issue that seems to be widely discussed within the Singapore blogging community."
