Conversation Blogging Is Still Too Hard

Tris Hussey links to a post by Amy Gahran pointing out that Blogging really isn’t mainstream enough yet.  Amy says that email discussion lists and forums are easier for new or non-technical users to pick up and start using.  Is it possible to make conversational blogging easy enough for these users, or are we forever doomed to a world where blogging is dominated by the technically savy?

  1. Hmmmm, I don’t know that using blogs conversationally is particularly difficult. I tend to think it’s mainly just awkward and not immediately intuitive to many people.

  2. I agree with Amy … the whole paradigm is such that you have to keep coming back to the page over and over (usually) and thay just doesn’t work for most folks … heck not even me!
