What blogging was

David Weinberger

At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,” ” with the aim of thinking about how Berkman can take better advantage of blogging as a platform for public discussion. They asked me to begin with some reflections on what blogging once was, because I am old. I understand that I’m reporting on how blogging looked to someone in a highly privileged position. My blog was me.

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. For me the biggest reason to blog is personal. If I don’t blog I don’t think as much, or at least not with as much focus. I don’t think it even matters where you blog these days. This is because just linking to my blog posts seemed unreasonable.

Luis Suarez

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. Blogs let us post whenever we had something to say, and came with commenting built in. Blogging isn’t golden! Long live 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. I remember an elderly relative saying “Oh yes blogging, that’s just people expressing their opinion”.

I’d be interested in some of the naysayers reactions to my teenage daughter Mollie’s blogging.

Back to Blogging

Doc Searls

So I can get back to all the stuff I’ve neglected in the meantime, including this: blogging. I think it was twelve years ago today that I put up the first post on this blog. Writing in WordPress is more complicated, but my favorite blogging tool is still OPML. Once tweeting came along, a lot of the stuff I once blogged about I began tweeting about instead. For example, you can still find everything I’ve ever blogged. Blogging was live and engaging.

That first CEO blog post

Euen Semple

Your first "hello world" blog post is hard whoever you are - and whoever you think is going to read it. But imagine doing your first blog post as a senior executive.
