Many wonder if the term blogosphere is still useful. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the term, but it’s like saying “the universe” when asked where you live. What’s missing is a map of the various neighborhoods within the blogosphere. Here are the ones I know of, and who blogs there:
- Blogibu Beach. Rich bloggers blogging about their expensive cars and mansions.
- Blogaritaville. Gen Yers blogging about their partying exploits.
- Key Bloggo. Just north of Blogaritaville, it’s where bloggers go scuba diving.
- Blogs & Noble. Bloggers bragging about the books they’ve written, and whining about not getting more sales support from their publishers.
- Blogs of Madison County. Lonely hearts bloggers.
- Blogolulu. Where bloggers go on their honeymoon.
- Blogcoma. Senior citizens discussing their health problems.
- El Bloggio. Not sure who blogs there, I don’t go to that neighborhood.
- Blogback Mountain. Blogging cowboys [or so I’m told].
- Bloggo Alto. Venture capitalists blogging about Web 2.0 startups.
I’m sure there are plenty of other neighborhoods, but I don’t get out very often.
