The Boring Blog Feedback Cycle

from the round-and-round-it-goes dept

It seems that by now just about every major magazine or newspaper has had some sort of article about “blogging”. And, now, I’m noticing a circular feedback pattern. Someone writes an article about blogging, which causes the blogger kids to write about it and criticize that article, which, in response, causes an online magazine like Wired News to write an article about how bloggers respond to articles, and that (in turn) will make blogger folks link to that article.
