Bloggers no longer exist
20 May 2008
Joel Postman has a spot on post arguing that claiming oneself to be a blogger is now a misnomer:
A blog is a tool. There is no such thing as “a blogger,” or someone who can be rationally defined by their ability to use a blog, no more so than there are “wordists,” people who define themselves based on their ability to use MS Word. The number of people who blog is now so large, and the things they blog about and the reasons they use blogs so diverse, that classifying someone as a blogger doesn’t makes sense.
The rest of the post is well worth a read.
I’m off making changes to my business cards right now.
