Conclave blogging? 

Wouldn't it be cool if one of the Cardinals was a blogger?

Can't you just see it now: one of those guys banging away on a laptop in his otherwise spartan Vatican quarters, red yarmulke by his keyboard, hoping that Blogger will publish without eating his post?

Forget the Cardinals.

If the next Pope has any awareness of the net, he would start blogging. What better way to reach the faithful all across the world? I guarantee he would enter the top 10 technorati and TLB blog sites within a week. Probably only a day or two, in fact. Preaching the Gospel has never been easier than now.

Heh. It had never occurred to this (lapsed) Catholic that the beanie was in fact, nothing more than a yarmulke.

Or "yamaha", as we mistakenly called them in my yute.

Oh, and I agree with FH - such a blog would be a hit, along with being easy to slide into the daily regimen. Why? Because who's better qualified to produce the sine qua non of bloggers, a daily homily, than a preacher, of any sort?

A cardinal could start a blogosphere-wide google bomb for his candidate and against the others.

But seriously, the next several days before the conclave would be an excellent time for a cardinal to hear the tech-savvy masses opine on their choice for Pontiff.

Fun to think about...
