Blogging the London terror attacks

Vaughan | 00:00 UK time, Friday, 8 July 2005

As London slowly tries to get back to normal after yesterday's terrible bomb attacks, some commentators have noted that many weblogs were providing personal updates of events, or simply being used by the blog authors to let their friends and family know they were safe. Meanwhile, on Ouch's messageboard there's been some debate about how disabled travellers fared yesterday once the city's public transport system almost completely shut down.

Bringing these two threads together, Ouch columnist Lisa Egan - whose site Lisy Babe's Blog is also featured on our blogroll - published an entry yesterday all about her experiences of what quickly turned into an extraordinary day for anybody who happened to be in London. Living and working in close proximity to the King's Cross area - the scene of the second blast at 8.56am - meant that she was right in the centre of events as they unfolded. Worth reading - and we're glad you're safe, Lisa.
