Would Jane Austen have made a good blogger? I believe so. She had a great ear for gossip and a gift for witty observations. Her daily posts would have been zingers.
What about Abigail Adams, the wife of the second U.S. President? Judging by the advice and good sense she poured into her letters to John, she'd have made a fantastic blogger.
Ernest Hemingway? No, thanks. There's nothing charming about an otherwise intelligent individual who blogs drunk. Charles Dickens? Yes. Especially if he felt free to describe the weird and wonderful people he encountered each day.
Queen Elizabeth I. Now she would have been a blogger worth reading. What might she have posted about her sister Mary and about that incorrigible Robert Dudley?
Mark Twain? Absolutely. The Innocents Abroad would have made a great series of blog posts.
Which historic figures do you think would have made great bloggers? No fair answering "Samuel Pepys." Stretch your imaginations a little.
