Do you follow a CEO's blog?

Hello Fools,

Do you follow a blog written by a CEO of a company you own or might want to own? Want to tell me about it? I'm thinking of putting together a piece for Fool.com. Maybe a short e-mail interview or blurb on topics like what you have learned from the blog that led to an action on your part; do you think the CEO writes it himself/herself, etc.?

It doesn't have to be a big company.

Thanks for your response and any suggestions.

I will be interested to read your article. The only CEO blogs I've followed yet are from privately owned companies.

www.ricksteves.com. Since he is a professional travel writer, I assume he writes his own blog.

This is not strictly a blog. But it is ghost written stories by the CEO's dog. Rhodesian Ridgebacks and jewelry stores were made for each other, I guess.

I wonder how many CEOs of publically traded companies would be able to write informative and engaging blogs.

I would imagine it depends on how good their secretary is. =)

It would also seem to me that some CEO's may not want you to know exactly who they are in a blog. Kris, you may have some serious detective work to do.

I have no takers so far, so am turning to the internal Fool community in search of  CEO-blog followers. I read the Weight Watchers CEO blog sometimes, David Kirchhoff, but he writes about his food/exercise/weight loss challenges. This makes him much more credible to members and shows he knows how the ground-level business (at the meetings) works. He's a fan, a success, a person personally interested in what the company does. But I'm not sure what it says in a larger sense about his ability to run the company.
