Whilst providing a good line for a bumper sticker and falling guilty to the “Blogs are only journals” line, this Vancouver Courier article provides a good plug to the deserving Jim Elve over at Blogs Canada, and an interesting tidbit on the business that SixApart is doing with TypePad, looks like a potentially profitable niche Mena & co have cottoned on to:
“But beyond that, the truth is that most blogs, while theoretically publicly accessible, are meant for a small circle of friends and relatives. Fake notes that a third of Typepad blogs are private — they require passwords to enter and read”. Strange but true. As a numbers junkie I couldn’t see the point in writing for just a handful of people, but then again maybe it’s just me.
