Tom Evslin has a great post in response to the general debate over the last few days on the growth of bloggers and blog readers (see my post on the subject here). Titled "The Blogobubble", the post ends with a statement I can agree with:
"The collapse of the blogobubble is like the falling away of a first stage booster rocket. It is just the beginning of wider use of blog technology and greater blog influence."
Tom adds some flesh to the bones of the argument I was making a couple of days ago, that it's still very early days for blogs. Mainstream readers are just getting familiar with the medium.
He categorizes several tiers of bloggers and their readers, and it's a good qualitative argument.
It highlights why this blog thing might just be at "the end of the beginning", as Winston Churchill would have put it. Recommended read.
