Blogging angst

Euen Semple

My friend Dave Tebbutt is wondering whether to give up his blog or not. Many of us over the years go through periods of questioning why we blog and if it is worth it.

The end of blogging’s golden age

David Weinberger

Brian Solis has responded to Jeremy Owyang’s provocative post declaring the end of the golden age of blogging. Here’s the comment I posted on Brian’s site: I think in a sense it’s true that the golden age of blogging is over, but that’s a good thing. And not because of anything bad about blogging.

“Blogging is just people showing off”

Euen Semple

This was the reaction someone had to the discussion the other day about the benefits or otherwise of blogging. remember an elderly relative saying “Oh yes blogging, that’s just people expressing their opinion”.
