My main response to rise of the blogosphere is like this ive had an online presences on various blogging or forum based platforms for most of my life. The history of Blogging having been around since mass media was created in some form or another is very interesting because the modern interpretation of a blog is so new its seems impossible that the idea of sharing thoughts publicly is as old as print. But just in wording it that way it becomes so obvious. Working with word press is a little jarring as i havent touch wordpress in years and to suddenly be thrusts back into its use is crazy for me. its certainly gotten much more usable and user friendly since way back, or maybe my technologically literacy is just more mature.
