While reading pages 293-297 I came across a couple of hotspots. The first hotspot that I came across was when Hourihan exclaimed, "Whether you're a warblogger who works by day as a professional journalist or you're a teenage high school student worried about your final exams, you do the same thing: you use your blog to link yo your friends and rivals and comment on what they're doing" (Hourihan 295). I liked that because when you blog you are putting information out there for other people to see such as, your friends, or your rivals. Another hotspot that popped out to me was the next sentence, "Blog posts are shot, informal, sometimes controversial, and sometimes deeply personal, no matter what topic they approach" (Hourihan 295). I really like what Hourihan says here, because it is very true. When you have a blog, there can be a lot of controversy about it because what you are writing is displayed to many people, and not just yourself. So, many people can judge what you have to say, and it can become controversial.
