Scott Rosenberg spoke on July 2009 about blogging. In chapter 9 of the video linked here, you can hear his “10 Myths about blogging”.

In case, you’ve missed it in his video, his ten myths are …

10. Blogging isn’t journalism
9. Blogs will kill journalism
8. There is a blogosphere
7. The first blogger
6. Bloggers are narcissists
5. Bloggers can’t be trusted
4. Too Many Blogs
3. Blogging is Dead
2. Blogging is Trivial
1. Most blog stink

Rosenberg also tries to answer the question of who was the first blogger in this video on YouTube.

Rosenberg co-founder of and is the author of the books “Say Everything: How Blogging Began, What It’s Becoming, and Why It Matters” and “Dreaming in Code: Two Dozen Programmers, Three Years, 4,732 Bugs, and One Quest for Transcendent Software
