WILL BLOGGING PEAK IN 2007? Heck, I thought it had already peaked back in 2003. Oh, well, as long as it doesn’t happen before February 6th!
UPDATE: Danny Glover thinks the blogosphere will peak in 2009:
Political blogs will be a powerful force during the 2007-2008 election cycle and may even make or break the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees. If bloggers choose, they also could be a factor in picking an “alternative” Unity ’08 ticket or vaulting some heretofore unknown third-party movement(s) into political prominence.
The next two years, however, will be the heyday for political blogs. While they will remain influential after that and new ones will continue to go online and gain popularity, their novelty will wane, the growth curve will level, and the blogs quickly will become an unheralded part of a newly merged media/political/activist landscape. The new media revolution will continue, but blogs will become a less prominent part of it.
Old bloggers never die, they just fade away.
