Is there a future to blogging? Well, here’s an article that suggests that blogging has room to innovate and evolve. The author suggests that it’s time for blogs to begin digging into niche topics and narrower markets of people: local discussions or just relevant, timely information about specific topics. Like cancer? Maybe. Like Relay? Maybe.
And technology is not standing still. Still out on the cutting-edge, but coming to a screen near you is video-blogging (aka, vid blogs and vogs). Instead of just pontificating in writing, now you can stimulate or bore people with your own news channel.
Where’s this going? Who knows, but the tools and opportunity to experiment with communication on an unprecedented range is expanding like the Big Bang. If you’re waiting for it to settle into something proven or to stop evolving, I wouldn’t recommend holding your breath.
