Today has brought yet another usual-suspects blog theme story, this time from the Baltimore Sun and featuring quotes from Cato Institute policy guy Julian Sanchez. The story itself, or at least the experience of reading it on the Sun’s website, reinforces why blogs continue to draw so many dedicated readers despite the massive investments many metropolitan dailies have made in their own elaborate websites. Despite being about the blog trend and referencing several specific sites, the only link in the online version of the story was to the Sun’s own visitor’s guide to North Baltimore. In order to find any of the sites described, you’d have to go to a search engine, copy the titles, and scan through the results, several of which are likely to be other newspaper story cites like the one you just read. Will they ever learn?
