October Heavy Chef Session: "Is Blogging Dead?"

For this month's Heavy Chef Session, held in Cape Town (already fully booked), we ask the question: "Is Blogging Dead?"
It's amazing to think that blogging has only been around for 10 years and people are already whispering about a 'dying art'. In the past month, we've seen blogging stalwarts like Windows Live Spaces and TypePad closing doors or selling up. Apparently, the rise of micro-blogging has all but vanquished the carefully scripted masterpieces that begat a whole new generation of wannabe-Hemingways.

So, is blogging really dead, or is it evolving?

We've asked this question of two legends of digital, Seth Rotherham and Rich Mulholland.

Just last week, the esteemed Mr Rotherham announced with great fanfare that his multiple award-winning blog 2Oceansvibe.com is no longer a blog. Seth's familiar online presence, strengthened by years of daily blog posts, now extends to radio, tourism and entertainment news. 2OV is now a burgeoning media empire.

On the other hand, the esteemed Mr Mulholland has recently redirected his focus back to blogging. Over the past half a decade Rich has focused his attention on growing his presentation, conference and innovation companies, after having burst onto the social media scene with Jo'Blog.

Seth and Rich will be presenting their answers to the Heavy Chef community on the last Thursday in October.
