The Eclipse of Blogs as Personal Journals

What's happening to blogs? They're becoming so corporate and clinical. They aren't necessarily the product and prose of a lone human trying to make sense of the world anymore. They've become avenues of revenue, badges of affiliation, and something I've only recently become privy to ... splogs.

The best ones for me will always be those (that I can tell are) written by a single person, sitting alone at their computer, in kerchief or cap, bleeding a tiny part of themselves onto the internet. Those are priceless.
