It’s interesting to note the slow but inexorable march of blog-content on the BBC website. First of all there was the Scotblog and then more famously the reporters’ log during the Iraq war. Now (and since who knows when) there’s the Gamesblog which is just what you think it is. :)
In addition, more and more viewer-written pieces are appearing in blog form such as the Blog of a non-smoker.
When you couple this with the fact that you can run your own weblog on the BBC Collective site, I think it’s fair to conclude that the BBC has gone utterly weblog-crazy. :)
Does this mean anything in a social networking, cutting-edge weblogging, lowering-the-boundaries-to-personal-publishing, acceptance of blogging-as-a-form-of-legitimate-journalism kind of way?
