Someone I know recently asked a private group of bloggers the question: When, if ever, is it appropriate to pay a ghostwriter to write for your blog? There’s a really thought provoking article on Squawk about the subject.

Every time I drive through an aging urban setting, I can’t help but think of all the farmland that once sprawled over hills, across the plains, and through the valleys. This fertile soil is now lost forever underneath asphalt and brick.
It’s the million dollar question I’ve faced time and time again. Each time you step up to the plate to write, you have a question to answer: who am I going to be this time?
