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!

Trends: How micromedia is evolving blogs

Web strategist and blogger Jeremiah Owyang observes how the nature of self publishing on the web is changing, with the traditional blog no longer the main vehicle for expression. Instead micromedia platforms like FriendFeed, Posterous, and Twitter make it easier to post more frequently, and are better suited to the sort of constant chatter we’re now seeing. Quick, easy and often, but  not necessarily richer content.

That’s not to say that blogs are disappearing, rather the new lifestreaming-type tools are leading to specialisation of the media: Blogs are still better for posting original, rich content, the larger thought-through pieces, while micromedia is better suited for continuous comms and is now taking that function away from the blog.

Is Blogging Evolving Into Life Streams?
