    Re: News - WordPress update released

    social networks and blogs are complimentary
    complementary?

    I agree that WordPress is probably the best placed out of any of the blogging sites to hold out against the tidal wave of social networking, but I still doubt it will be enough. Can't help feeling that blogging is a dying art, at least in the social way it's usually done as opposed to professionals like the BBC.

    That's largely the problem though, people have this assumption that "if you write it, they will come" and the web is filled with stuff like "The House that Blogging Built". The blogs that are good will remain up because they have loyal followers and content worth reading. We may be getting to the point where people are starting to realise that they can't make their fortune writing about crap on the internet.

    Not to say that blogging is bad, if you have something useful to say that fills a niche, then I have no problem (and I frequent plenty of blogs for tutorials and advice), but 90% of people just want to talk about their banal lives and social networking provides a much more targeted outlet.
