Observations On Blogging

Terry Teachout, "the drama critic of the Wall Street Journal and the music critic of Commentary," has made fifteen observations about blogs and blogging. Among the interesting points:

6. Blogging puts professionals and amateurs on an even footing. That's why so many professional writers dislike and distrust it.


9. Within a decade, blogs will replace op-ed pages.

10. Blogs will be to the 21st century what little magazines were to the 20th century. Their influence will be disproportionate to their circulation.

11. Blogs are what online magazines were supposed to be.


15. An impersonal blog is a contradiction in terms.
They seem fairly accurate to me.

A webjournal of ideas, comments, and various other miscellany from a Texan university student (with occasional input from his family) living in Toronto, Ontario. Can you say "culture shock?"
