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
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
companies, after having burst onto the social media scene with Jo'Blog
