Last year, I noted that the Times had started blogging (MSM Blogging Review: NYT Starts Blogging, too [2]). A few months later, we discussed that the Times’ offerings had ballooned to over 30 blogs (Its Official: The NYT Has Gone Blog Crazy! [3]).

This week, the NYTimes introduced [4] one more blog: Paul Krugman’s [1].

I did not see any announcement, and only found it via my traffic log’s referrals. We received a nice mention in this post: Is This the Wile E. Coyote Moment? [5]

I actually have a funny Paul Krugman story, which I mentioned here [6] when it happened in 2004 (So Paul Krugman and I are chatting . . . [6])

Not paying attention to my surroundings as usual, I literally plowed into him as I was leaving a studio and he was coming in. Papers went flying everywhere. That capped a week of embarrassing celebrity interaction: First Greg Mankiw [7], then Paul Krugman, and most amusing and embarrassing, my major faux pas with Nobel prize winner Robert Engle [8].

If you haven’t seen that Nobel Prize story, its an absolute must read: A funny thing happened to me on the way to the studio tonight . . . [8] Its absolutely one of those strange truth is funnier than fiction stories/

Oh, and welcome to the blogosphere, Paul!
