Blog Post Zero

I'm not sure that starting this blog is a good idea. But upon the encouragement of a blogger friend I'm going to do it anyway. For my first post i think it is appropriate to link to one of the first bloggers I read. Salam Pax , incredibly, blogged from pre-war Baghdad. He's now an author and Guardian correspondent and documentary-maker (reviews of his film are here and here). He abandoned his old blog a while ago, and rarely updates his new one. Here are a week's worth of updates that he sent in to the Guardian from his first visit to DC (he's visiting N.America with his new documentary). I'd be interested in watching his film but i doubt he's going to bring it to Champaign soon.

Thanks for your comment but i'm not sure i understand it.

If you're commenting about Salam Pax, then you should know that i am not him, but merely linked to him in this post.

Alternatively, perhaps your comment refers to another one of my posts, or perhaps it belongs on somebody else's blog entirely (and in that case i don't know how it got here).
