Blogging isn’t disappearing yet

Kyle Christie writing on Tomorrow’s News, Tomorrow’s Journalists:

So the role of bloggers as scrappy underdogs, biting at the heels of the establishment and the mainstream media – that has almost certainly come to pass. I may no longer be able to love it, and it’s certainly not time to nurture its demise. But until something as expansive and as flexible comes along, I’ll keep pressing the publish button.

Is it maybe perhaps more realistic that this era of “scrappy underdogs” is all a bit of romanticizing about the past? We love to glorify underdog stories but I think that sometimes we tend to look at past events and movements as slightly grander than they really were.
