Among others, the “Stars” include Xiaxue, Dawn Yang, and the MTV Asia VJ Twins May & Choy. Each week, they would each blog about a set topic presumably chosen by The Straits Times, or would it be voted by the readers? It wasn’t clear.

Although, STOMP is a very innovative project indeed. No one can say blogging is a waste of time now. I mean sure, not every blogger will become famous and rich from it but the activity itself has definitely hit the mainstream HARD.
Old media has embraced new media with a humongous bear hug. Rock on.
