Blogging then and now

This is a great post on how blogging has changed over the last six or seven years.

The Blogosphere 2.0
It is an astute assessment and every point strikes me as correct.

I would add one point. Blog readership appears to be an intensely partisan audience. What pulls readers (skimmers?) is red meat for the true believers. Predictable punditry sells. It is the Crossfire model reborn so that only the left or rightwing host has a microphone.
