There was a discussion on Hacker News the other day about whether blogs are dead or not.
I think that there are still many blogs, more than you could ever read. (You can find some of them in my blogroll.) What is different today is that blogs are harder to find. Sure, sometimes when you search for something specific on Google, you find blogs too, but most blogs are more likely to be found via links or aggregators (Hacker News, Lobste.rs, Reddit…).
As a result of the discussion on Hacker News, a new subreddit with the title “Bringing back the 90s Internet” has been created in which only authors are allowed to present their own blogs. A nice initiative, I think, which will probably lead to a few more subscriptions in my feed reader.
