The Blog Herald have just predicted their Predictions for blogging in 2005 which make interesting reading (although the first three they admit they’ve been predicting for a couple of years now).
Anyway – some of the predictions are quite relevant for those wanting to make money from blogging so they are relevant to problogger – particularly predictions 5,6 and 7.
5. Blog advertising will boom – YEAH bring it on!
6. The better blogs will be purchased – I agree – we’ve talked about this a few times at How much is your blog worth and Blog Farming
7. Other will pool their resources - ie we’ll see more networks for bloggers emerge to compete with those like Weblogs Inc. Again I agree and have seen a few examples of this recently. They’ve got some catching up to do though!
