Are blogs dead yet?

Mr. Paul Boutin thinks so.
As a writer, though, I'm onto the system's real appeal: brevity. Bloggers today are expected to write clever, insightful, witty prose to compete with Huffington and The New York Times. Twitter's character limit puts everyone back on equal footing. It lets amateurs quit agonizing over their writing and cut to the chase. @WiredReader: Kill yr blog. 2004 over. Google won't find you. Too much cruft from HuffPo, NYT. Commenters are tards. C u on Facebook?.

Brevity is the new black. As this - your - blog has been ever black.

Let me say, just say: If blogs are templates withy simple content, then blogs should die fast.

It is a fact, I always disagree with a scriveners' blog without a clear visual intention behind the content. A clear example may be one those milions human beings that use a classical and marvelous WordPress template, obviously designed by someone else for some other specific purpose.

When you write a book: Do you care for the cover, the typography, the paper? O you just simply use the photocopier, staple it and leave it on a bank in a park waiting for someone to read it?

Do you use you blog just to vanish your ego? If so, sure blogs are not dead. But this is not a trend now; years ago, someone pretended they were dead.
