Een paar ex-bloggers zijn weer aan het bloggen geslagen en Jason Kottke krijgt het er warm van. Onder wie Lockhart Steele, oprichter van Curbed Media en de editorial director van Vox Media die op The Verge onder meer de volgende keiharde statements maakt:
It’s been a lot of fun over the last month to watch Nilay, in his new role as editor-in-chief of The Verge, encourage his team to re-embrace an ethos that I can only describe as bloggy.
At a time where #longform is a hashtag known to all, perhaps it’s time for #blogging to reclaim its seat at the table, too.
Thinking about all this has stoked my desire to get back in the game myself. So, today, I’m raising my personal blog, lockhartsteele.com, from the dead. Over there, on a daily basis, I’ll be blogging about Vox Media editorial, as well as things that have nothing to do with our company, such as restaurants and — indulge me here — the Red Sox. Part of my goal is to offer a clearer window into what’s going on in the Vox Media world; the other, simply, is to regain the practice of daily blogging.
For me, the web ecosystem will always be bloggy at its core. I’m looking forward to being a part of it again myself.

Er is sprake van een ware #blogrevival (zie Twitter).
