Another week and another big blogging story from the mainstream press, with this weeks effort from Newsweek looking at the white, male, middle aged American kingdom that is the blogging A-List in Alpha Bloggers. Aside from the normal “bloggers influence stuff and stuff happens” take on influential bloggers, Doc Searls gets himself taken off Nick Denton and Jason McCabe Calacanis christmas card list with a small line towards the end of the piece that is nothing more that an unprovoked salvo across the forward bow of the good ships Gawker and Weblogsinc
“If you’re into blogs to make money, you’re into it for the wrong reasons,” says Searls. “Do you ask your back porch what its business plan is?”
But yes Doc, does my porch have as many hits as Gizmodo or Engadget, or is likely to be sponsored by large multinational companies?
