Hold onto your laptop: blogging is dead. Again. We really mean it this time.
Maybe blogging smothered, or was crushed by its own weight — there are 130 million bloggers.
Here are some recent obits:
“Blogging Is Dead,” Robert X. Cringely, InfoWorld, via PCW Business Center
“Blogging is dead, Wired said so,” brandelion, Blithe
“WooHoo! Blogging is dead,” Steven Hodson, WinExtra.com
“Is the Original Blogging Dead?” Allyson Kapin, Fast Company.
Was it … murder?
“Blogging is Dead, All Hail Twitter!” Andrew Currie.
The British aren’t quite sure yet:
“Is blogging dead?” Rory Cellan-Jones, BBC News Dot Life.
Some bloggers apparently believe in reincarnation:
“Blogging is dead, long live blogging,” Econsultancy.com
There’s even a blog named Blogging is Dead. It looks … dead.
