The Blog Busters

From the Guardian

They were once seen as the preserve of the geek, but nowadays personal opinion and diary pages - weblogs or “blogs” - are so powerful that huge corporations are taking an interest.

The sites that started as observational home pages for enthusiasts have become so powerful that they are starting a new industry of blog monitoring in which media companies scour the net to advise brands on how their name is being talked about online, away from the traditional newspaper and broadcast media sites.

Lord knows that I’ve written about my experiences with corporations large and small here. To be fair, I usually write when I really really like something or I’m completely disillusioned.
