Lots of chatter about The Blogosphere 2.0, a post which has 7 bullet points: - The A-List Doesn't Matter Anymore - It's all about niche blogs - Blogger Burn Out - Reader burn out - MSM yawns - Huffington Post. - Twitter and Facebook Not much I'd disagree with in the generality. Multiple times that politics/general interest weblogs have linked to me it is noted that I'm a "specialist/technical weblog," but I really think everyone is focused on a specific area at this point. It's just that political and policy weblogs seem to think everyone has a general interest in their topic. Also, I do think the "A-List" matters a little more than the author of the above post, especially for new blogs who just aren't on anyone's radar.
