The Death of Blogging Is Greatly Exaggerated

Bud Hunt, Bud the Teacher, Nov 26, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Last year Tony Karrer suggested that blogging may decline in 2007. And this trend has been evident since 2005. And I said it was cresting in 2004. So Ryan Bretag's suggestion that "blogs need to evolve or face a sure death of stagnation" is, if anything, stale-dated. Which is why we need posts like this from Bud Hunt to remind people that there is no 'one blogosphere', much less no 'one edublogosphere'. Blogging will continue so long as the act of blogging benefits the person doing the blogger. This may or may not involve personal transformation - you know, just having a place to write works too.
