I miss the old blogosphere -- we've gained a lot, but we've also lost something

I miss the old blogosphere -- we've gained a lot, but we've also lost something | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
A post by long-time tech blogger Dan Gillmor about the decline of the “indie web” got me thinking about the old days of the blogosphere, and how powerful the unedited voice of a single passionate blogger can be. Have we gained as much as we’ve lost?

I miss the old blogosphere too, to be honest. It used to be a mess, yes, but it was really about personal voices and stories.


Big blogs seem to have stopped caring about that...

Just moving on ...... but missing the old ways.

Author Mathew Ingram was inspired to write an article after he read a post from a blogger by the name of Dan Gillmor. The latter is a tech blogger who had recently wrote an entry about the decline of what he called “indie blogging”. This got Ingram feeling nostalgic about the old ways of blogging and how it was more centralized around the individual and not all these companies creating blogs to raise awareness. He also talks about how other social media sites, mainly Facebook and Twitter, have been dominating and taking many bloggers away from sites they used to use prior to that.

Going on four years now, I have operated a Tumblr page and it has been a great pass time for me. It is far from a professional blog but it was something that I was interested in and a website like that made it easy for me to get a taste of what blogging is all about. To a certain extent, I can see where Ingram is coming from seeing how new websites have allowed just about anyone to start their own blog. However, I feel like there are still some other blogging sites where people need to have HTML knowledge and are much more professional about their postings. While there are more people blogging nowadays, there are still spaces where Ingram can blog with people who post more like him. In the end, life nowadays have made it harder to be a hipster as the internet now makes just about everything available to anyone who wants something.
