If you are, or plan to be a candidate in the upcoming municipal elections in Charlottetown, Summerside, Cornwall or Stratford, there is a certain part of the electorate that will expect you to have a weblog. If you don’t know what a weblog is, this summer is the time to find out, and the best way to do this is to read other weblogs. The technical part is easy; learning how to write for this audience has a learning curve.
This isn’t thousands of electors I’m talking about. But if you do this right, and your ideas are compelling, you might pick up 25 or 30 votes in a polling division. And in a close race, that might be all it takes.
