Politics in Non-polictical Blogs

Dr. Sweetser studied how people talk about politics in blogs not about politics. She found that people make 15-18 posts about political issues. However, these were not in your-face-posts but antidotes from their life about political issues. For example, a post might talk about how the flowers are dying in someones garden because she has stopped watering it due to a drought.

People actually accepted and responded to these posts.
