Has the term ‘blogger’ really been rendered meaningless?

October 19, 2009 2 comments

Hey guys, I came across an article by Scott Rosenberg the other day, debating Jay Rosen‘s suggestion that the term ‘blogger’ has become such a broad term that it will eventually render the term meaningless. More specifically, Rosen suggests that by referring to both journalists who blog and bloggers who aren’t the professional kind, the term will become too broad to be used.

However, Rosenberg rightly points out that the term ‘journalist’ has never faded away even though there are two ways of understanding the term: as a profession, and as a description of an activity. Thus, he maintains that the term blogger is unlikely to expire any time soon. What do you think?
