Hayes defined some different types of Blogs which, in his view, will survive. He describes all other Blog’s falling into the category of "mememe.com" or written by geeks who you wouldn’t want to meet on a dark night.
I’m not sure how useful this categorisation really is…
A) "BRANDED BLOGGERS": Well known writers/celebrities. So Jodie Marsh’s blog will survive. Phew.
B) "INTELLIGENT AGGREGATORS": Who make little comment but drive people readers to other useful sites. Pretty much what Drudge Report does, but that’s not a Blog…
C) "WELL-CONNECTED BLOGGERS:" e.g. journalists and former politicians who uncover information. Would Adam Boulton fall into this category?
D) "BRILLIANT BLOGGERS:" Who attract readers with their prose and wit.
