TWO TYPES OF BLOGGERS
Daniel Drezner has an interesting continuation of a longstanding discussion in the blogosphere about the division of labor between blogs that are primarily generators of new content/commentary (thinkers, commentators) vs. those that are aggregators (linkers, portals).
Dan, correctly in my view, says there is room for both. Indeed, while there is certainly something to be said for the service provided by pure linkers, one would think it would be much harder to get established that way now that there are a goodly number of them. Of course, with blogging as with golf, the best way to be a “successful” one is to go take it up a few years earlier.
