The end of blogs?

From The New Republic, on the future — or not — of blogging: “A funeral for blogging feels not far off — or at least a mid-life crisis. Blogs still exist, but they lack the youthful vigor of 2003. ‘It seems like the new young people aren’t very interested in blogging,’ Kelly Conaboy lamented Tuesday at The Hairpin. It’s not so much that blogging is dead, but that it’s splintered beyond recognition. Almost every publication you can think of has blogs, but the impact is very different than the blogs of yore.”
