eBay Joins Blogosphere

According to Micro Persuasion, eBay is about to launch blogs, wikis, and search tags. Auctionbytes notes that eBay just changed its newsletter "The Chatter" to a blog format.

As Jimmy Durante said, "Everybody wantsta get inta the act!" I've seen the future and it's a blog. At this point, with every major online player incorporating blogs into their product offerings, the long-term outlook for quality bloggers is far greater than that for journalists.

Hired blogslingers as a serious career option is just around the corner. Who will have the time or desire to read newspapers when everyone is reading and writing blogs--and the shift from reading print books to online content continues apace.
