There is an overabundance of "huff and puff" postings written by self-proclaimed "blogging experts" out there - it's ALL crap! Case in point, via Outside the Beltway :::
This is also debatable ::: Twitter Is Killing the Blogosphere - Guess what! TWITTER isn't always "all that"...
Citing...news of Nate Silver’s 538.com moving to the New York Times, longtime blog trend spotter Chris Bowers pronounces the death of the amateur blogosphere.
He cites three overlapping trends:Er... okay...
1. Established media companies and advocacy organizations hiring bloggers to blog, full-time
2. Previously “amateur” progressive blogs became professional operations
3. Bloggers translate blogging into consulting and advocacy work
So, everyone thinks the blogosphere is dead, huh?
Every now and then someone with a brain comes along, a genuine expert sharing "credible knowledge." Like this fellow ::: Matt Sussman shares his thoughts: "Who was the yutz that first suggested that it's necessary for a blogger to write daily? I believed them. I now want to discredit them as a blogging expert. But by now they've probably moved onto being a "social media expert," which I think is simply a guy who never forgets his LinkedIn password." I really got a chuckle when I read that! It is SO TRUE! Matt also advises "Don't blog yourself into an early grave" and "Perhaps in the future, such an opportunity will arise where you can write what you love full time. It's happened to a great handful of people. Just don't bank on it." You can read his entire article on Technorati!
