Podcast 2006.8: News for August 21st, 2006

Today, we take our normal look at news throughout the blogosphere and world of technology. In particular, I discuss Mike Rundle’s recent post about Niche Blogs and the Long Tail of Content over at 9rules (covered at the Blog Herald this weekend). We also talk a bit about some new columnists here at The Blog Herald and a preview of what’s coming on future editions of The Blog Herald podcast.

    Haha, before I listen to the podcast I saw that you guys mentioned my Typepad blog….. so I might as well just say I’m going to let it die. It’s been around since July 2003 and was the jump-off that helped me gain some initial linkage/popularity, but writing about personal stuff doesn’t have the allure it once had. I think the reason is that I used to think my personal life was more interesting than my business opinions, but now I feel it’s flipped, but maybe I’m wrong. Okay, time to listen…

    that’s too bad — but we all close blogs from time to time…

    I enjoy Business Logs alot -and your posts at 9rules.com are always good ;)

    And I was very positive in the podast about 9rules :) Write that down :))

    Good stuff Matt … I especially liked the first 3 minutes of the podcast :)

    And your dreams: admit it, you’re worried where I’m going to go with my column seeing that you gave me 100% editorial control. You’re worried that after I settle into my role here I’m gonna cause a shirt-storm of good old-fashioned linkbaiting, controversy ;)

    Be afraid, be very afraid ;)
