The vastly influential International Listings Blog, just published its list of the top one hundred architecture blogs and—no surprise—varnelis.net does not rank there.
But what then? Obviously my interests don't address conventional ideas of design. But maybe there is an element of truth in my Fake Steve style rant (after all, congratulations are due to the 100 top bloggers that these experts in luxury real estate picked … namaste, my friends, I bow down before you)...
What if blogging is dying, mutating, changing. Where is it going to go? I stopped blogging between 2003 and 2005 out of boredom with the solitary nature of the endeavor but then the spread of RSS made it into a collective process. What's next? There's my interest in slow blogging, but there might be other models such as Daniel Eatock and Jeffrey Vaska's Indexhibit format or underworldlive or Perous Secret Diary (based on Jan Schjetne's Death Boogie Diaries). Any thoughts?
