I am currently testing post2blog application. I used to use windows live writer. It is actually a good application for blogging. But finally, I found it to heavy for my small machine. Therefore, I am looking for a better blogging tools that is light and powerfull. Google let me found post2blog. Several review said, that Post2Blog is nice and I actually agree with that. Post2blog is little bit snappy on my little machine. But, I have to take a longer observation on the tools to make more comprehensive conclusion.
The highest level of a blogger is to be “Blogger of Influence”. I got the phrase for a book titled “Dispatches from Blogistan”. I think, the phrase indicates that influence is the most important thing from a blog. Good blog post, must influence its readers. I think, technorati agreed with the phrase. Just look at the technorati page. You’ll find a specific widget that display “the hottest bloggosphere item”
I believe that there are political blog in Indonesia. But I think, political blogging in Indonesia is less dynamics than political blogging in America. Almost everything in America are discussed politically through weblog. And if you do a little online research through techorati, you’ll find that 100 top political blog are written by American. Or at least, discussing American politics or if they are discussing world politics, they discuss it through American perspectives. It is slightly different with political blogging in Indonesia. The culture is not matured yet. There is exist political blog in Indonesia but the number is not significant yet. Not enough to influence Indonesian politics. Or at least, less significant to influence public discourse.
Few days ago, Nazarudin’s blog is a hot news. I also think that he maybe a brilliant politician. He use a blog to fight back. But, unfotunately, his blog is a hoax. Finally, the blog’s writer declared that the blog is not Nazarudin’s blog.
Ini bukan blog milik Nazaruddin yang terkenal itu, tapi ini hanya blog biasa yang mencoba mengambil untung dari bendahara, eh dari traffic saja. Tidak ada hubungan apa-apa dengan Nazaruddin sendiri.
Few days ago, the writer posted political news about Nazarudin case. Almost everybody believe the post. Even Metro TV believe it. But recently, there is a change on the style. The writer posted a parody of nazarudin’s case. The unknown writer maybe afraid of lawsuit.
After Nazarudin’s SMS warning few days ago, now everybody talking about his controversial blog. It is said that Nazarudin use the blog to fight back. The controversy on Nazarudin’s blog give rise to the next question. Is it real blog?
On one of the blog posts, Nazarudin said the blog is his real blog.
Mantan Bendahara Umum Partai Demokrat (PD) M Nazaruddin mengamini blog nazaruddin78.blogspot.com miliknya. Nazaruddin mengaku akan melakukan ‘perlawanan’ lewat blog. "Iya itu blog saya," kata Nazaruddin saat dikonfirmasi detikcom lewat telepon, Selasa (31/5/2011).
But the acknowledgement is also controversial. The blog’s tagline said something weird.
Ini bukan blog milik Nazaruddin yang terkenal itu, tapi ini hanya blog biasa yang mencoba mengambil untung dari bendahara, eh dari traffic saja. Tidak ada hubungan apa-apa dengan Nazaruddin sendiri
It means, there is contradiction that materialized on the blog posts.
Nazarudin is not only briliant. He is also knowing the current trend of internet use for political reason. I means, according to Metro TV, he has a blog and used it as a tools to fight back. The blog maybe only hoax. But the most important thing is that the blog create a specific public sphere that facilitate everybody who have concern on the Nazarudin case to post their comments about the hot scandal.
Andi Mallarangeng said that the blog only add noise to the bribery case that launched few days ago.
