Monk’s assistant Natalie has a blog on the USA Network site. She is, of course, a fictional character and her blog is written by me. But that’s just one example of what’s fast-becoming a rampant marketing practice — blogs by fictional characters.

UPDATE: USA Today has an article today about TV shows with blogs that also touches on the "fictional blogger" angle.
