A Quote by Michael Pollan on writing, objectivity, journalists, blogging, and being

So choose your first person deliberately. Too many newspaper first
persons -- and a lot of magazine first persons too -- are written in
the voice of the neutral feature-writer. They're the voice of the
Journalist. That is the least interesting first person you have. Nobody
cares about journalists. They're not normal people. So choose a first
person that draws on a more normal side of your personality. And think
about which one will help you tell the story. You'll see that in very
subtle ways it will shape your point of view and your tone and unlock
interesting things.

Michael Pollan
