Republican National Convention rolls out blog

The Republican National Convention on Tuesday took the wraps off its chatty new blog, Conventional Wisdom.

Convention organizers said the blog will make use of video and graphics and will focus on events both in Tampa Bay and around the country as delegates and GOP officials get ready to come to Tampa for the Aug. 27-30 convention. Convention spokesman James Davis said he hoped readers would send in their own questions and suggestions so that "we can peel back the curtain of the convention in a way that's educational, interesting and fun."

"Creating an interesting and useful blog is just one way of communicating with people across the country," convention CEO William Harris said. "It's part of our larger plan to open the convention and make it accessible to as many people as possible using cutting-edge technology and interactive social media."
