Person to person

In an interview, New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik recalls that when he was writing his series from France (which he reworked into a very nice book, Paris to the Moon), he would do two third-person essays for every one in the first person.

Somehow I don't imagine that kind of writerly thought process explains why Rep. Sue Myrick's recently launched blog shifts from first person to third after the first two entries.
