  1. I think as time goes on, blogging will start to seriously compete with the magazine/newspaper industry (more than it already is). I think one day people will initially look up a blog regarding a specific issue (fashion, music, movies, etc.) rather than read Vogue or a special interest column in a newspaper.

  2. In my opinion, blog is more and more important for this world. Because we all have a free internet surrounding and we could talk everything we want to talk in the blog. People can change the mind each other. Writing the blogging is easier than writing with pen. So I think not only for now, in the future, the blog will become the most popular things.

  3. Blogging is suppose to be a place of learning and freedom of expression. It might be a required aspect of most classes in the future.

  4. Blogging will eventually become a medium for news even more so than it is today. In this social media age we live in today it is already becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the news since it comes to us so quickly now.

  5. Well, they wouldn't have done a Blogosphere if blogging was not becoming a huge aspect of our society. I think the younger generations will see blogging as a normal thing, and like Austin said magazines might take a loss due to blogs
