The Christian Science Monitor is analyzing blogging in an article titled “Blogs: Here to stay - with changes.”
The piece looks at the proliferation of blogs, their affects, and where they may be going. A couple excerpts.
“Except for a tiny number of blogs that have gained prominence, all this techno-chattiness remains just that: an immature form of communication that has yet to gain traction with the general public, experts say. Most are moldering in cyberspace, updated only sporadically or abandoned completely. But out of this fervid experimentation are coming some new forms of communication that are already influencing public discourse.”
And this statement, which I find to be right on the mark.
“Although making a living just blogging is nearly impossible, a blog can have a great deal of career value by demonstrating one’s expertise and writing skills, thus serving as a “reputation builder,” Blood says by phone from San Francisco. “You can quickly establish yourself as an expert in your field by becoming a kind of one-stop source for information.”
Interesting read if you’re a blogger.

Venlet at Improved Clinch, for instance, often goes twenty or thirty minutes without blogging.Posted by John T. Kennedy on 04/15 at 10:44 AM
You are the Instapundit of libertarianism. Or something.
If I had just one blogger like you over at NT I could sit around drinking Cuban Screws all day. But no, I had to sign up a bunch of lazy assed anarchists who think of nothing but themselves.Posted by John T. Kennedy on 04/15 at 12:22 PM
