Blogademic

It came without a warning, web logging took over the cyber world with an explosion of creativity. Blogging continues to lure the young and old, into it’s devilish grasp. As the days past, blogging continues to take over the world. Blogs are popular because the blogger can express their creativity without restrictions.


Web logs are used to state the individuals’ opinion about certain topics that the blogger feels strongly on. Blogging is also used as an online journal, or novel on the persons’ life. It gives the person freedom to express their creativity without limitation. Many people have very interesting blogs, which can also be heartbreaking. In my blog, http://everydaystressinmylife.blogspot.com, I describe the everyday stress in my life. I write a weekly blog to keep the other bloggers informed of what is currently going on. My blog posts explain how certain events molded me into the person that I am today. For instance, I describe how my move from New York to Ohio changed me as a person. When bloggers read my posts, they leave me a opinionated comment about my posts. Other bloggers write about things that are important to them, traveling, favorite team sports, food, and so on. The fact that people write their opinions on your posts, shows that they are interested and they actually pay attention to your posts.


In the book, We’ve Got Blog, J.D. Lasica interviews four journalists and questions them about their opinion on blogging. J.D. Lasica’s article, BLOGGING AS A FORM OF JOURNALISM: WEBLOGS OFFER A VITAL CREATIVE OUTLET FOR ALTERNATIVE VOICES, states that “ Web logging will drive a powerful new form of amateur journalism…,” (163). Journalist Paul Andrews believes that the more the internet evolves, it will be an electronically published world. During his interview Andrews says, “ If the tools become more sophisticated…, then I think we’ll evolve to a different kind of journalism,” (167). Web logging is slowly testing the waters of journalism. Young journalist can write without any restrictions, and they can always publish their articles online in .05 seconds. Deborah Branscum lists the cool things about blogging: Creative freedom, instantaneity, interactivity, and lack of marketing constraints. Branscum says that web logs tend to be less about actual reporting and more about analysis and opinions. She believes that journalists will continue to write for publication that pay. She also states, “ Unless someone figures out a way to pay journalists for our web logs…” (169).


Web logging has created a hierarchy. Bloggers have a placement that ca be temporary, unless they become very good at writing blogs, and they become popular in the blogging community. The bloggers on top of the hierarchy tend to be snotty, and judgmental. They are the one’s who are popular in the writing community and extremely good at writing. Those individuals’ have a passion for writing and they take their hobby seriously. The bloggers who commented on my class’s comments on Defective Yeti is a prime example of the top dog’s in the hierarchy. The bloggers on the lower level of the hierarchy are the beginning writers. The one’s who are trying out the whole blogging scene, but get no slack by the “ top dogs”.


My opinion on web logging is neutral. A whole world of it’s own, web logging has taken over cyber space with a punch of its’ fist. It seems like this new scene has become popular over night. Web logging is used as a form of journalism, or personal diary. Because bloggers can express themselves without limitation, web logging has become popular. The only negative thing about web logging is the hierarchy. The top bloggers should not give the beginners a hard time. They are just starting out with blogging. I think they should be given a break. Not everyone is perfect, or has extreme love for writing. I think they need to stop being so judgmental.
