It's been over a week since a member of the Post editorial staff posted to the Domenech or Little threads at the post.blog.  Apparently they have lost their taste for the kind of dialogue they said they wanted to have with their readers. As one recent poster commented, The Post seems to have believed that "If we just manage to look bloggy enough..."

I believe we can help them with that. I believe we have an opportunity to use their blog as a kind of Dadaist project to explore the concepts of blogging vs. blogginess.  We can help them make it look as "bloggy" as possible without tipping over into actual blogness.    

The Daily Shows has given us "newsiness" (if you will) and Colbert has introduced us to "truthiness".  The Washington Post has now given us an unparalled opportunity to explore the idea of blogginess.  Have some fun.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
