Rough Type: Nicholas Carr's Blog: The Great Unread

From a comment on Rough Type: Nicholas Carr's Blog: The Great Unread:
"Perhaps for people who are using blogging as a way to route around old media, sure, your low readership may be disappointing. But I, and most of my friends who blog, are only trying to route around sending mass emails to family and friends. Or sending letters to the editor. Or participating in discussion boards. In that context, 50 people reading my blog seems quite gratifying.

The original blog post was about how blogging is dominated by an elite much the same as other media. It's actually a very interesting comentary on the hype about blogs as a counter to "big/old media." I guess the real underlying issue is that there is more than one "blogosphere" and that all participants in any such thing necisarily have their own goals and reasons for doing it (or reading it).
