Processing the Blog…

Have you ever stopped to really think about the blogging process? I mean, really analyze the process? It’s pretty interesting when you do. I’ve been thinking of all the factors and how they effect my blog lately, which is why I want to redesign and change things around – and at the same time I don’t. Change can be very good – and sometimes it can be bad. In the end, how accurate do you think the blogging process is? Where do you think blogging is headed? [via Meryl]

On one hand, I think it’s great. On the other hand, I’m sensing the same obsession some of the major media has exhibited about blogging: Why and how.

I understand the point, but at the same time, I don’t see the point. Blogging is what it is. I think we just need to start enjoying it more, and trying to understand it less.

It’s a great article, and obviously thought out, but I just don’t know how many more analysises of blogging can really be done…

I know it’s supposed to be serious, but I can’t help but think of this:
when I read that article.
I don’t really have a process or schedule per say, but I do think sometimes my “process” resembles that. to me, that structured process makes it seem more like a job or a responsibility than a fun hobby. There are very few times where I feel “oh no I better post today!” – if I find something to share, I share it. if not, then there’s nothing for me to share and oh well. Maybe that’s why my blog isn’t that great, but that’s just the way it is for me I guess. I think analysing the process for people who are more serious about blogging, or who do it as a business thing and make money from it is important because when the process is outlined they can find ways to improve or streamline it to make their job easier and blog better mayhaps.

Honestly…? I think that blogging is heading towards taking over from mainstream, big-media journalism.

You can already see it happening with the biggest blogs, like Andrew Sullivan. (Not that I actually like his stuff!)

It’ll take a while, and I’m not actually sure that it will be more democratic than traditional media, but I reckon it’s happening.
