"True; there is only so much you can read about someone's life - unless they lead extraordinarily interesting lives, the entries start repeating after a while. No matter how good a writer you are."

I think it's only the Finnish blogosphere where all the popular blogs are about people's dull lives. And probably the reason why so many Finns think blogs are a fad and will soon die.

No, it's universal. It's just that in Finland they're more visible.

For now.

Urghle. Reading through your comment again: yes, I agree. It's one of the reasons why subscriber top-lists skew the public vision. I don't recall seeing the "personal journals" vs "non-personal journals" discussion given this much weight anywhere else.

People who run big blog awards have the power to point the blogosphere in the right direction, they should use that power :-)

--Phil, 24-Nov-2005

No, they don't. They can perhaps get visibility in the local media, and give warm fuzzies to some people, but that's about it. (Oh yeah, and annoy people who take competitions too seriously for their own good.) But sometimes it is necessary.

The blogosphere will do whatever it damn pleases.

The Finnish blogosphere will do whatever it damn pleases, absolutely. But a certain five judges of a blog award has a lot of influence over that.

--Phil, 26-Nov-2005

Nah. Only over the ones with a weak mind.
