Ben Brogan, political editor of the Daily Mail, hasn’t quite got the hang of the latest craze at Westminster for setting up your own blog.

The best political bloggers — such as wannabe Tory MP Iain Dale and the mischievous Guido Fawkes — have updated their sites daily, even hourly, throughout the summer.

Perhaps Brogan should take a leaf out of Sky News political editor Adam Boulton’s book. He takes his blog so seriously that he was even updating it from his paradise island honeymoon with Tony Blair’s exgatekeeper Anji Hunter.

Harder than you thought Ben? When you leave the blog it dies, that is why you have no traffic or comments…
