Will crisis boost blogosphere? February 9, 2009

image by axinia

Everyone seems to blog… everyone?? No, there is still a great potential for blogging to spread around the Earth – and the great current crisis seem to be the driving force.

The print media business is experiencing serious difficulties and the readers switch to the online media. And  – suddenly they find themselves slipping into the blogosphere. Once tasted blog-reading one can hardly leave it. The authentical experiences of people taste crunchy and one gets easily addicted. One becomes a blog-reader and then one day, at some point one finds  himself/herself blogging!

Being the cheapest and most authentic form of information services, blogging will definitely boost this year.

 At least some positive  outcome of the crisis.

  1. You’re right, Axinia! 🙂

    The print media can go to hell! 😡 They have become quite worthless. Online media is the future! 🙂 The internet is one of the places that are truly free in this world! But the filthy governments and corporations want to control this media as well, and not just totalitarian regimes like those in China.

    I’m not able to access some Pakistani sites that I was able to access earlier 😦 I don’t know whether it’s the Pakistani government that is blocking access to Indians or whether it’s the “democratic government” in India that’s blocking access to some Pakistani sites. Shame on the scoundrels who are doing it, whoever it is! 😡

    Also, there are other positives to come out of this crisis. Food and fuel prices have dropped considerably and many poor people are able to have three square meals a day again. Some time ago, the notorious international killer corporate oil mafia 👿 kept pushing up the oil prices to unbelievable levels and kept diverting corn and food cropland to produce bio-fuel and many people were pushed to starvation because of the insatiable greed of a few. Now, things are better for those people. But if this crisis becomes really bad, many people will lose their jobs and be pushed into poverty 😦

    I swore up and down I wouldn’t get into blogging. Now I love it.

    Raj, what is really good apart of growing blogging is that many people here in the West are starting realising how few things they actually need 🙂 I mean now more and more people, before buying soemthing, ask themselves: it is really good for me? do I really need that stuff? Somehow, people seem to be awakening from the consumption aftermath…And that is great!

    Molly: blogging is addictive! -and fabulous 🙂

    you are right Axinia…. once into blogging world its tough to leave. And in this crisis time many will come into blogging to kill time, then they will be get addicted 🙂

  5. axinia Says:

    thanks, kanagu, but I think I blogging is not only about killing time…it is much more..it is about getting connected and involved…it is about becoming closer and closer… feeling humanity as one being…

  6. I hope some good writers take up blogging 😛 am trying to get a few people i know to blog 😀

    good idea, vishesh 🙂

    Sorry Axinia, must write in german 😉

    Sicherlich bloggen viele einfach nur aus Spass an der Freude. doch es gibt viele Blogs, die befassen sich sachlich mit Themen aus Politik, Kultur, Forschung, Wirtschaft usw.
    Oftmals werden viele dadurch animiert, ihre eigenen Fähigkeiten, Ideen, Gedanken dann auch online zu stellen.

    Das die Print-Medien da das Nachsehen haben, ist klar. Warum soll ich mir eine teilweise teure Zeitschrift kaufen, wenn ich die meisten Informationen für umsonst aus dem Netz ziehen kann? Immerhin haben die größten Zeitungen und auch die Nachrichtensender ihre Webseiten.

    Trotzdem glaube ich nicht, dass die Printausgaben dem Untergang geweiht sind. Manches hat man doch auch gerne auf Papier vor sich.

    Wortman, kein Untegang für Printmedien – nur weniger davon…

  10. Wortman Says:

    Bei der ein oder anderen, ist es sicherlich nicht unbedingt schade drum, oder? 😉
    aber bei unserem Glück erwischt es dann meist die falschen 😦

  11. kanagu Says:

    Yes Axinia.. its about connecting.. but as a starter they will do as a hobby 🙂

    Hi Axinia. I guess you are right in what you have said. Blogging is and will continue to be on the rise. It is still a relatively new phenomenon in the media but its potentials are great and rewarding.
    Many thanks for the blogosphere. Without it, it would have been very difficult for me to get to your blog and enjoy your nice thoughts and insights.

  13. axinia Says:

    Prometheus, thanks a million, that is sweet of you 🙂

    Blogosphere is something really great!!

  14. Scott Says:

    A friend of mine told me to check out your blog. I read several of your entries… very nice thoughts and some lovely pictures. I like it! The personal touch…THAT’s what you don’t get in the traditional media. And blogging tends to show humanity more than nationalism or political correctness. Cheers!

  15. axinia Says:

    Scott, thank you for that intresting note – you are right, it is the personal touch that makes blogging so special.

    keep visiting 🙂
