In fact, there is not one single blogger out there that I have ever heard of or come across that is most bloggers. Everyone has their own individual voice, regardless of what it is you write about or write for. I read a number of technology blogs, and just because a story is covered by both Mashable and TechCrunch, does not mean its only worth reading one or the other. In fact, most times you will get a better view of the story if you read both.
So when I see headlines or surveys or reports that try to group bloggers into specific groups and note that there are only a few types of people who blog, it worries me that people still don’t really get it. Blogging has been around for some time now. It’s an established platform, not an emerging one. People have used blogs to spread news, create buzz, sell products, tell stories, make friends, save people, raise money, and teach you how to blog.
Blogging is no longer new media.
