The personal brain-dump of Garrett Coakley

Blogging is not dead

Well I would say that, wouldn't I.

I'm referring to a recent edition of Jason Kottke and Tim Carmody's Noticing newsletter.

Jason asked Noticing readers to send in links to their blogs and newsletters, or their favourite blogs and newsletters written by someone else, and as he says:

My inbox exploded with replies. I couldn't include all (or even most!) of the links I got, but below is a good sampling representative of the types of blogs and newsletters I received.

It's a great list, and I'll be adding a few of them to my RSS feeds.

There's also a fantastic quote from Kari about why she writes:

I also keep it out of spite, because I refuse to let social media take everything. Those shapeless, formless platforms haven't earned it and don't deserve it. I've blogged about this many times, but I still believe it: When I log into Facebook, I see Facebook. When I visit your blog, I see you.

This place feels more like me than any other platform I use out there.
