Blogs Recession

Stocks declineAs the number of Web logs continues to rise (nearing exponential growth), an anti-climax is rapidly reached. Attention is spread among more blogs and hence feeds/spiders account for more of the traffic for most blogs.

As more users share content and publishing tools become easier to use, pages become less content-rich or genuine. Increased comment spam and compatibility for the rel="nofollow" tag attribute discourage involvement. The symptoms can be spotted already.

Will the blog phenomenon die once blogs become as widespread as E-mail accounts? The main gain from this ‘Blog Era’ is the shift of power from authorities to individual people. Anybody is capable of being heard, which is fantastic.
