I've recently heard and read a lot about people who are getting bored with mainstream media stories about blogging. While I sympathize, I think it's important to realize that most people out there haven't even heard of blogs and the fever is just catching on out there in America.
Freelance journalist/blogger Kevin Sites has been mentioned by young bloggers as an inspiration. I've been wondering where he's been lately. He did a fantastic blog-story about post-Tsunami Banda Aceh, and he hasn't blogged since then. Come back, Kevin! We miss you. Congratulations are overdue to Kevin for his recent Rave's Best New Blogger Award from Wired magazine.
