New York's Official State Blogger Is...

by J. J. HUNSECKER · March 4, 2008

    New York’s Official State Blogger Is…Well, unfortunately there isn't one, but there should be one don't you think? After all, Eliot Spitzer recently announced that the state's official author and poet for the next two years shall be Mary Gordon and Jean Valentine, respectively. These honorary distinctions are made by the New York State Writer's Institute, in the hope that these two writers will promote fiction and poetry across the state through public talks and readings.

    I didn't know people still read print on paper anymore...I mean it's 2008, isn't that stuff out-of-date? Just kidding, but really we should create an official state blogger designation. I'll go ahead and kick off the nomination by throwing my hat in the ring and anyone else who wants to nominate others, just comment below. Let's say nominations close at the end of the week then we'll all vote. Sound good? Good. I'll start by nominating myself.
