R.I.P Blogging?

Christianity Today says blogging has peaked and may be a dying medium, but they seem to assume the purpose of all blogs is thoughtful commentary and amassing readership.

Thanks to widespread blog burnout, everyone will be famous to 15 people for 15 minutes.

Tech researcher Gartner Inc. reported earlier this year that 200 million people have given up blogging, more than twice as many as are active.

"A lot of people have been in and out of this thing," Gartner analyst Daryl Plummer told reporters. "Everyone thinks they have something to say, until they're put on stage and asked to say it."

I see blogging as more of a modern commonplace book and a way of sharing with the family what my current interests are -film right now, but the name "divers and sundry" was specifically chosen with my changing obsessions in mind.
