Someone start writing the dirge for the Curriculum Vitae, because as New Statesman’s John Bernstein says, blogging IS the new CV.
A little confusing since he was the same person who asked, “blogging, what is the point?” The point he explained is to decide whether it is passion versus cash, in other words an art form rather than economic enhancement.
He is all about passions but says, “The heats that you do for free will lead to something that pays.”
