“Is blogging a slog? Some young people think so”
What kind of older person wrote that headline?

CHICAGO – Could it be that blogs have become online fodder for the — gasp! — more mature reader? A new study has found that young people are losing interest in long-form blogging, as their communication habits have become increasingly brief, and mobile. Tech experts say it doesn’t mean blogging is going away. Rather, it’s gone the way of the telephone and e-mail — still useful, just not sexy.”
Ah..well thanks for the attempt at coining something, Martha. Anyway. I think blogs have been going this way for a while. They’re still important and still there and still a critical part of social media. But it’s sort like e-mail becoming the new snail-mail…micro-blogging (Twitter and the like) is beginning to replace blogs in some ways.
