In 2004 the importance of blogs and blogging has grown enormously, enough for Merriam-Webster to choose ‘blog’ for its word of the year.
No doubt, blogs will only become more widespread in 2005 and following years. In the next 5 years I wouldn’t be surprised if a blog becomes an expected part of a person’s fabric. A few years ago I expected everyone would have a website within 10 years. I did not know the website would be in the form of a blog.
UPDATE: 2 years too late like usual, Microsoft joins the ranks of blog providers.
