Changes in the Blogosphere?

No, I'm not announcing the move of Telling Secrets from Blogger to WordPress - although I ought to do it soon if I want to take advantage of the falling snow option only offered through the holidays. :-)

Just noticing that while more and more organizations and entrepreneurs seem to be blogging these days, I see fewer and fewer plain folks just journaling in public and sharing the half-baked thoughts from their mental kitchens. Is blogging more professional than it used to be? Are the standards rising? Can I keep up? Do I want to?

Do you like the change, or regret it?
  1. Positive: More of the published content is polished and well-written.
  2. Positive: Blogs are better organized and often more visually pleasing.
  3. Negative: Few of the people who used to blog as a hobby or way of staying in touch with family and friends have continued to do so. I miss them!
What would you add to the list?

I must admit that the blogs of people that I read for pleasure are few. Mostly because there are few out there that I find interesting!

Yours is one of the few, Marti.

Thanks, Paul - likewise, of course!
