Bloggers Offer Inside View to Convention
BOSTON -- The food at receptions, the wonkish policy details debated over breakfast, the gossip on the convention floor -- in an age when the personal is political, blogs and conventions are a natural fit.

Dozens of delegates are writing for Web logs, or "blogs," promising the folks back home their take -- up close and personal -- on the pomp and politics of the Democratic National Convention.

Many delegate bloggers supported Howard Dean, whose Internet-based, grass-roots campaign set fund-raising records and attracted a large following. Some say they want to keep that online effort alive even as they transfer their loyalty to John Kerry, the party's presumed nominee.

"We don't want to lose the community, and we could lose it if we go back to the traditional methods of Democratic organizing," said blogger Ellen Meserow, a Washington delegate and former state technical director for the Dean campaign.
