Hey, this is actually good news! Yes, the blogosphere has been slandered from all sides lately, but (BUT) the blogosphere is being noticed. It is being exposed. It is debated about. Its concept, its content, its local existence. And not only between bloggers, but within the media, between people who didn’t know what blogs were a couple of weeks ago.
And what is even more amazing is that there is a stable base of bloggers, who have been in the blogging community long enough to defend its position, and to bring forward these issues. Once again bloggers heated up the Patricia De Lille debate, as much as they did with David Bullard’s - Bullardgate. And all this might have seemed negative, or frustrating at the time but ultimately these issues came forward, virally, spread from one blog to another, from one media house to another, and created discussion and debate, and that is what is really important here.
The blogosphere is being attacked from all sides, why(?), because it is becoming a powerful entity, because it is becoming a serious entity, and because it is growing rapidly in this country, and is starting to be taken seriously. It is a pity that its fame is rising due to attacks against it, but it is publicity which shifts it into the lime light, and it’s up to us bloggers to prove that this platform of communication and content sharing is important, is exciting, enriching, stimulating and credible. It is important for us to prove that slanderous blogs have no standing and are frowned upon by bloggers too. Amen.
Is this graph hinting towards a prosperous local blogging future or what?
