The End of Blogging?

 

Gone, in other words, is any sense that blogging as a technology is revolutionary, subversive or otherwise exalted, and this upsets some of its pioneers. Confirmed, however, is the idea that blogging is useful and versatile. In essence, it is a straightforward content-management system that posts updates in reverse-chronological order and allows comments and other social interactions. Viewed as such, blogging may “die” in much the same way that personal-digital assistants (PDAs) have died. A decade ago, PDAs were the preserve of digerati who liked using electronic address books and calendars. Now they are gone, but they are also ubiquitous, as features of almost every mobile phone.

Remember when blogging was the new thing and only few blogs were around? Blogging back then was the thing. Today countless blogs are created and abandoned. Even the early adaptors are getting tired. Are the days of blogging over? It seems technology has moved on. So I guess our days as bloggers are numbered. But this will not be the end of it, just a transformation.
