No, it ain’t. Not yet. But the obsession with blogging as a fad may (mercifully) be fading. Anyway, read this Wall Street Journal column, Blog Epitaphs? Get Me Rewrite, by Jason Fry for a cogent rant on the topic. Hurry; link will go behind a paid subscription firewall.
From the article:
“Within a couple of years blogging will be a term thrown around loosely
— and sometimes inaccurately — to describe a style and rhythm of
writing, as well as the tools to publish that writing.”
For what it’s worth, I say something very similar in The Corporate Blogging Book.
Another article pondering the “blogging is dead” meme is here in the Washington Post (Feb. 26, 2006).
