Blogging bits and bobs

A few pieces of news caught our eyes this morning, all on the same subject – that of blogging.  Wired blog, Epicenter, picked up on the Pew Research Center report that blogging amongst younger people is on the wane but is also quick to point out that although blogging, as defined in the early 2000s, might be slowing, information-sharing and other “blog like” activities are stronger than ever.

Which seamlessly carries us into the news that blogging tool of the moment, Tumblr, has raised an extra $30 million in funding.  Tumblr has been a perfect example of how blogging continues to evolve and change, so to see them get this Sequoia Capital investment will only serve to push that innovation further and perhaps see “lifestreaming” overtake blogging on the Web.

How has your blogging behaviour changed over the years?  Have the newer microblogging tools taken the place in your heart of more standard blogging platforms.. let us know below!

    The trend in society, not just in technology, is to defy labels. Social networking, blogging, and microblogging are converging, but still remain distinctive. Elsewhere in society, we’re seeing Goths, Punks, Vamps, Emos, and even countless variations and combinations.

    We are becoming free to do whatever we’d like, as long as we don’t infringe on others. Want to put out a steady stream of updates about your trip to Arby’s? Facebook, Twitter, and more can oblige you. Want to write 30 pages on Randian feminism? There are plenty of free blogging sites and niche publications that will take your entry.

    Someone can interact with whatever content in pretty much whatever medium they choose, just like they can create nearly any personal identity they may want.

    We will continue to see a proliferation of content in subtle variations in 2011 and beyond.
