How do you make bloggers write about you and link to you? You do like WIRED: tell them that blogging is a waste of time and that they should stop.
Norwegian free magazine Spirit predicted the death of blogging way back in October 2005. Back then, podcasting was the new way to communicate. I argued that this is like saying books are over because of books-on-tape.
People read, even if they also listen to the radio and watch television. I believe this is true both online and off. And I believe that Twitter, Facebook and blogging are three very different ways of communicating, and that you don’t have to choose one over the other.
This got me thinking about why and how I blog these days, and whether this will change as I write more for actual publications.
