He was telling me that he didn't think that blogs are as big of a deal in England as in America. More specifically personal blogging isn't seen as much here. Sure there are blogs that are connected to businesses/publications/newspapers. There are blogs about technology or pop culture- but I'm talking about the kind of blogs I like to read (and write).
There are some seriously big blogstars out there:
These are people that have turned writing about their personal lives into serious money. They've got thousands of readers, tons of publicity, book deals and even movies. I can't find anyone like them that comes from/lives in England.
Is this just a cultural difference? Maybe something to do with the non-profit culture so pervasive in the UK?
Perhaps I'm not looking in the right places? Anyone care to point me in the right direction?
