Former State Secretary Yusril Izha Mahendra who started blogging recently and met with some of Indonesia’s active bloggers (see link here) is starting to see some of the benefits of engagement.
At a kopdar with Abi, Rina Priyadi, Jay, Deden, Eko and Vavai, Yusril apparently got a lot of advice not only how to blog but also a makeover of his log from Vavai. Now it looks clean, professional and in his latest posting Ucapan Terima Kasih Yusril acknowledges all the help. Result: a whole heap of comments.
Yusril, apparently acting on the advice of bloggers, is also taking on his critics. Check out his reply to Dragonwall in the comments section of Indonesia Matter’s posting on Yusril.
Will all of this help Yusril to rehabilitate himself politically or launch his career as an actor? Time will tell but in the meantime it is interesting to watch.
