No, ladies and gentlemen, blog networks aren’t dead, they’re just a bit more anonymous than they used to. Not counting b5media of course, they’re doing their thing as usual… The blog networks of today are more subtle, not big network navigation bars or set templates, although some still do that. It is more of a subtle form of networking these days, with individual brands linking together in partnerships.
The individual brand is important, so it makes sense to make it stand on its own. I’ve written about that previously on Wisdump.
