I thought this must be a joke.
In a move that might make some people scratch their heads, a loosely formed coalition of left-leaning bloggers are trying to band together to form a labor union they hope will help them receive health insurance, conduct collective bargaining or even set professional standards....
"I think people have just gotten to the point where people outside the blogosphere understand the value of what it is that we do on the progressive side," said Susie Madrak, the author of Suburban Guerilla blog, who is active in the union campaign. "And I think they feel a little more entitled to ask for something now."
Ask for ... what? From whom? Where is the Standard Oil of the blogging world? Where are the exploited bloggers slaving away in sweat shops?
I like Susie's blog -- a whole lot more than some others -- but I think if bloggers wanted to form anything, a trade association might be more appropriate -- that is if you could find leaders exquisitely talented at herding cats.
