Steven Baxter who thinks of himself as a blogger but is, in fact, a clogger, as he writes a blog for the New Statesman suggests that, perhaps bloggers need a kitemark to gain their readers' trust. Apparently, not only did he discuss this with some right-on (or left-on) bloggers but the subject has also been raised by the NUJ.
Well, that's just dandy. The NUJ, one of the most discredited organizations in this country, is going to invent a scheme whereby bloggers, who try to steer clear of their political agenda, get a kitemark allegedly to gain their readers' trust.
I don't think so, comrades. Your readers might or might not trust you but my readers tell me if they disagree with me or they simply stop reading if they feel that what I write is untrustworthy. And that goes for all real bloggers.
