A few pieces of news caught our eyes this morning, all on the same subject – that of blogging. Wired blog, Epicenter, picked up on the Pew Research Center report that blogging amongst younger people is on the wane but is also quick to point out that although blogging, as defined in the early 2000s, might be slowing, information-sharing and other “blog like” activities are stronger than ever.
Which seamlessly carries us into the news that blogging tool of the moment, Tumblr, has raised an extra $30 million in funding. Tumblr has been a perfect example of how blogging continues to evolve and change, so to see them get this Sequoia Capital investment will only serve to push that innovation further and perhaps see “lifestreaming” overtake blogging on the Web.
