One thing I've noticed, is that the majority of blogs that I read regularly, are written by journalists, or writers who have already been published in one form or another. The only non-journo blogs I read are those of my friends and acquaintances.

I don't agree with this though. Especially not the usenet comparison. Apart from the fact that a lot of people still use usenet, the main reason people (and here I mean myself) left was the spam, and the trolling. Neither of which are problems for blogs, primarily because they have people directly responsible for them. I'm not going to start adding gratuitous adverts to this thing. Nor am l likely to suffer from trolls, primarily because I don't turn comments on, although even if I did (and possibly more on that later), I'd still retain the power to zap them with my digital laser. This is my domain, and I can squash you like a bug! Muahahaahahaaaa!

Of course NTK gets him in their opening salvo.
