Blogging Turns 10

The usual ‘blogging is dead’ hand-wringing as blogging turns a decade old. On page 57 of Blogwild I wrote:

Eventually, the hype surrounding blogging will wear off, and everybody will move on to the next bright, shiny new thing. [Which looks like has become Social Networks, for now.] In the future, we’ll all say, “Well of course you can edit any page on your site easily and instantly – what do you think this is, print?!”

I couldn’t be more right. The technology behind blogging has extended everything else. The practices and etiquette have advanced older formats (forums, email, lists, ezines.)
