Ultimately, I think it would be a great idea to have a union, despite the absolutely horrible experiences I have had working as a union organizer. It’s different when you are a member of a union I think…
The implications of a blogger’s union is fascinating, especially because bloggers and the Internet transcend national boundaries, creating the possibility of a large and powerful community of diverse writers with the ability to impact Internet and free-speech laws.

1. Health insurance.
2. Blogger’s code of conduct.
3. Hate-speech and intimidation tactics by site visitors.
4. Fair-use laws. (If you are reblogging my posts, and you are generating money through ads, I should get a cut/royalties.)
