The Death of Blogging

Written by / Posted in internet events / 1 Comment

On my way to BlogWorld Expo in LA.  Last time I went I was a little bummed that I felt like more of the people I met were non-bloggers than bloggers.  With the advent of Twitter & Facebook I’ve noticed that many of my favorite bloggers, people like The Mad Hat have totally stopped blogging. In fact, I blog a lot less frequently than I used to.  I love Facebook and all but occasionally it is nice to write something that takes more than two sentences and I can have conttrol over the links, graphics, and formatting.

Lately I’ve been cruising around the blogosphere a lot more lately while working on my newest turbo charged, black velvet, white gloved online semi-combustible money making project.  I’ve noticed bloggers have, for the most part, started monetizing their sites and are using lots of 2007 monetization strategies, i.e: adsense or ad networks, totally missing the long term value of their readers.

It has been about a year since the last BlogWorld so I am going to be curious to see if there are real bloggers there or not.

If happen to be there look for me.  I’ll be rolling through the expo like a 240 lb. rear naked choke pulling surf buddha.
