More on the c|net article on Blogging and Work

I mentioned earlier that I had been cited in a c|net article, which was certainly great for traffic. I didn't actually get around to reading it until yesterday. I noticed the same deficiencies that other bloggers did: a noticeable negative attitude that is hardly borne out by what's actually happened. Then, Tim Bray published a list of the reasons blogging is good for your career, and perfectly outlined what c|net could have covered to balance their article.

There seems to be a glut of mainstream media coverage of blogging lately, but one is hard-pressed to describe any of the coverage positive. Perhaps this is always the way when a new solution traverses the path from early adoption to mass adoption: skepticism and scare tactics...followed by the Eureka moment, followed by praise and promotion (and preening over who "championed" it first.)
