I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the evolution of blogging, its interaction with social networking, and the role of content-based community on the web in recent weeks. These three posts really chimed with some of my conclusions:
3 Posts About The Future of Blogs & Comments
- Stephanie takes on[ two evolutions of blogging she really dislikes](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2010/03/30/blog-what-happened-to-you/): blogazine-style blogs (where I agree with her) and partial posts on the front of the blog (where I disagree with some points) - Jeff Jarvis teases out the [key points in the clash](http://www.buzzmachine.com/2010/03/23/the-problem-with-comments-isnt-them/) between the commenteriat culture of the internet and the control mindset of journalists - Do the new class of [“miniblogs” or tumblelogs need to differentiate](http://twopointouch.com/2010/social-media/time-for-miniblogs-to-get-different/) themselves more?
Plenty of meat for musing in all three of those posts.
