In blogging, small is beautiful: indeed, my blog is small enough not to be bothered by having comments to delete or to moderate nor being invaded by a huge amount of censorship work (in fact I receive a very low amount of comments).

A new report confirms that blogs and social media are now the main things people spend time with online.

Blogs? Aren’t those so five years ago?

Hardly. In fact, blogs are growing faster than many headline-grabbing social media sites, and they’re everywhere.

(By the way, the entire Nielsen report is worth reading — it’s slick, and covers a lot of the digital landscape.)
