Our resident political blogger Iain Dale names Jeffrey Archer as his blogger of the week but not before pointing out a few harsh lessons for a would-be member of the blogosphere.
"Lesson one: Update your blog every day even if it's only a couple of lines. Lesson two: interact with people who leave comments and don't leave it for days on end to moderate them."
Super-blogger Brian Micklethwait thinks Archer has got potential.
"He's a dreadful name dropper but at least he has names to drop. You wouldn't want your sister to marry him but as a blogger he might prove to be quite good.
"Perhaps this blog is Archer's reaction to a big media blackout and perhaps he's using it launch yet another comeback. If so, more potential fun."
Elsewhere, on his weekly missive for Channel 4 News Radio's Morning Report Iain turns his attention to the silly season - and Edinburgh City Council's threat to arrest Mel Smith for smoking a cigar on stage as he played Winston Churchill.
The Daily Pundit blog was suitably outraged: "Smoke a joint and you're cool, Labour cool ... but dare to smoke a Havana cigar on stage ... the health fascists will be down on you like a ton of Amsterdam's finest."
Devil's Kitchen, not unusually is fizzing: "It's ironic that the touchpaper should be lit by a play about Churchill, reckoned by many to be our nation's greatest hero of modern times; the man who helped saved us from the worst imaginable tyranny."
Mars Blog disagreed: "He doesn't actually have to light the cigar. It's called acting."
