I came across the word in a certain blog as its title. Love that word, musings. Very nostalgic. It reminds me of 2002 when blogs were named as musings or rants or rambles or space or scribbles(like this one) and the bloggers wrote whatever they wanted. The good thing was hardly anyone read those blogs when compared to blog aggregators, feed readers and all the noise of these days.
I wish and hope that I could be as raw, naive and unfettered as those days.
It’s over. The revolution happened overnight and we didn’t even know it. We’re all now in charge, together, as one big group collective.
The a-list is dead.
As posted by Jim Kukkral on his blog, referring to the latest blogosphere burn-out Jason Calcanis.
I partly agree with Jason’s note that blogging is dead. That’s right, dead. Not in the literal sense. Evolved would be a better word to describe this. But blogging today has evolved too much from it’s original idea that it doesn’t qualify to be called evolution. Hence blogging, as we know it, is already dead. And so are the A List bloggers.
Any help on suggesting the present A-listers of Indian Blogosphere will be for the greater common good of….well…you and me. I promise to twitter this list, digg it, create a facebook group , bookmark it and finally, I will include it as a part of my friendfeed. But I wouldn’t blog about it, ’cause it’s dead.
Three sentences to describe the blogopshere time travel, back to 2002.
~ Went on a random tour of Indian Blogosphere through blogrolls, comments and other pointers.
~ Found some amazingly fresh blog talents which are more personal blogs[including chick-lit blogs] rather than show-offs, like this one.
~ Subscribed to the feeds of these newly discovered personal, neon-colored stat counter pasted, I-went-to-my-paati’s-house-yesterday type blogpost filled blogs.
I’m back in 2002. Yay !!
Should I sue Gizmodo and feed their publicity hunger or should I just take this naming of Lazy Geek Cushion as a compliment ?
Thanks GP for the pointer.
“I haven’t died yet,” said Michael Arrington, the founder and co-editor of TechCrunch, a popular technology blog. The site has brought in millions in advertising revenue, but there has been a hefty cost. Mr. Arrington says he has gained 30 pounds in the last three years, developed a severe sleeping disorder and turned his home into an office for him and four employees. “At some point, I’ll have a nervous breakdown and be admitted to the hospital, or something else will happen.”
Info Overload has been a recurring theme in this blog for the last 2+ years. Info overload is nothing but a heap of nonsensical stuff that you read/write(blog) online everyday.
NY Times has wake up call for bloggers and I’m sure it should also include blog readers and web wanderers.
Too many blogposts on a single blog makes no point. As the information gets more and more duplicated over the web, some one has already written about what you want to write about. The ad revenues or the number of people reading your blog feed is not significant than one’s health.
So as said before, don’t read this blog and more inportantly take it easy.
