Since its beginning in June 2010 Café Whispers has evolved into a ‘light’ political blog with a definite lean to the left. About 80% of our topics would be of a political nature with the remainder made up of media discussion, social issues and the occasional light-hearted banter. Yes, we do take our blogging seriously but we also like to have a bit of fun.
Whatever the topic, we like to leave them ‘open’ for our readers to fill in the gaps with their own thoughts.
We have over ten authors who are all highly regarded for their expertise in their fields, but the most credit should go to the wonderful contributors for their insightful comments. And to our numerous readers, of course, many of whom share the articles on Facebook where they also receive lively debate.
At the time of writing the blog is within a whisker of receiving its 100,000th comment and by Christmas this year we will have welcomed our 750,000th visitor.
The blogmaster is Miglo, who in real life is Michael Taylor, a Canberra resident and ex-Public Servant. That’s him in the photo (which was only taken a few weeks back ). Miglo is ably supported by Min (Carol Ahern) who helps run the blog.
