Bono goes blogging

Mark "The Moose" Bonokoski has tackled just about everything in three-plus decades at the Sun - reporter, columnist, publisher, freelance magazine writer etc.

The multi-talented Bono has just added blogging to the list with Moose Country, a blog hosted by and featuring transcripts of his radio commentaries aired on the Moose-FM network.

It is another side of the city dweller that Sun readers haven't seen in his years of penning mostly serious columns about life in the Big Smoke, so you are in for a treat.

Listeners in Ontario's cottage country tuning into Moose-FM stations mostly hear a more laid back Bono commenting on the lighter side of new life as a country dweller.

Bono launched his blog with transcripts from a few recent Moose-FM broadcasts and an introduction to his latest venture:

"Well, folks, I'm getting a blog soon. In fact, here it is. So ramp up the lawyers, and put them all on notice.

"This could get interesting.

"Blogs are on-line notebooks. They're the in-thing these days. Anyone who has a computer and can string two words together can have a blog — even if what they have to say makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

"Anything is possible in cyberspace.

"And that's what makes it so scary.

"The blog that is being created for me will be called Moose Crossing.

"Get it? Moose-FM. Moose Crossing."

Bono has been using that five-letter word frequently in the past year, so don't get Mouse Country confused with his widely-publicized Free Bob the Mouse campaign. That's a whole other moose story.

Welcome to blogging, Mark. We are looking forward to reading your country side.

Just one tiny, tiny request. Spaces between paragraphs. Much easier to read.
