The Decline Of The Blogosphere

More and more, it seems, folks are blogging without reading other blogs first, or just ignoring what they’ve seen on another site. This happens to me all the time these days, and it seems especially true of the group or “team” blogs, in which folks dip in and out of the sphere without necessarily keeping up with it. Not surprisingly, it’s frustrating.

For others, however, it might be a perfectly good way to go, assuming their readers aren’t reading anyone else, either. Who’s to notice you’re posting something that someone else posted hours or days ago? After all, that’s what the newspapers do -- and they rarely give credit, either.

UPDATE: AFT John wonders if I’m being reasonable in the comments section below, and TonNet, a blog that’s new to me, suggests that it’s all about relationships.
