Bloggers: All Typed Out?

Has the blogging phenomenon peaked or is this just the beginning of the next big wave. PC magazine discusses these issues in the following article.
The blog phenomenon is following a familiar cycle, according to Gartner: We're in the midst of the hype phase, but soon bloggers (and readers) will pass into what Sarner calls a 'trough of disillusionment, where they'll realize that blogging isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread.'

Not everyone agrees with Gartner's prediction. 'I find it hard to fathom that blogging will peak only a few years into this phenomenon, while the technology for creating and aggregating blogs is still the domain of the early adopters,' says Larry Genkin, publisher of the soon-to-be-launched Blogger & Podcaster magazine (coming in March).

I dont think that blogging will die that quickly. At times it can be very theraputic. Dont you think so?

I agree. Blogging will be around for all those who have something to say.

It's a wonderful democratic tool and yes it can be very therapeutic to put into words what you are thinking in your head.

Blogging is a great way to clarify your thoughts.
