The BBC announces that Blogs are taking on the mainstream – ‘Web logs or blogs are everywhere, with at least an estimated five million on the web and that number is set to grow….
But this year the focus has been on blogs which cast a critical eye over news events, often writing about issues ignored by the big media or offering an eye-witness account of events.
Most blogs may have only a small readership, but communication experts say they have provided an avenue for people to have a say in the world of politics….
US research think-tank Pew Internet & American Life says a blog is created every 5.8 seconds, although less than 40% of the total are updated at least once every two months.’
Looks like its that time of year again when all the articles come out to predict that this is the year of the blog.
