Two posts about the state of blogging caught my eye earlier this week, and made me stop and think about the future of blogging.
- This essay in Wired — Twitter, Flickr, Facebook Make Blogs Look So 2004 — lamenting the state of blogging today. “Writing a weblog today isn’t the bright idea it was four years ago. The blogosphere, once a freshwater oasis of folksy self-expression and clever thought, has been flooded by a tsunami of paid bilge.” (Hat tip to Ron Bronson for the find.)
- This announcement that Britney Spears has started a blog.
