When blogs become fashionable

March 30, 2003

Blogs are definitely “in”. Everyone is trying to come up with something to blog about. Even traditional media wants to get into the game, warblogs being the premier example. However I found it totally absurd for the Boston Globe to try to hide what is nothing but a sports column behind a blog ( a bad one at that!). The effort is so poor, that the only post so far is simply a preview of the upcoming baseball season with links to stories to each team, with essentially no content. Even worse, if you click on the previous weblogs page you get “page not found”, you would think that with the season beginning tonight, the blogger would be posting up a storm. What is remarkable is that I can think of so many ways to make a blog about the Red Sox informative and entertaining even if I am 2500 miles away from Boston. (Yes, I am one of those die-hard followers of the Red Sox and the curse of the Bambino). This attempt to “blog” by the Globe simply shows why blogs are becoming such a serious threat to traditional media, they just don’t get it!
