The September 26th Sunday NYT Magazine dedicated significant space (including photos over 10 pages) to "The Bloggers on the Bus" - an article about bloggers covering Election 2004. Couldn't help but wonder why the Times took weeks to run an article covering bloggers at the conventions. It seemed a little off.
But it was rather fun to learn that Ana Marie Cox (Wonkette) hasn't had to buy dinner and drinks "in months" and that Markos Moulitsas (Daily Kos) feels quilty about not linking to more bloggers, being successful, attracting tons of traffic and oh yeah..."that I make as much money as I do now..." [violin time]. Sometimes even "A List" bloggers sound whiney and spoiled.
However, Election 2004 might be considered the tipping point for political and jourmalism blogs. What happens after November 2004? Where will the bloggers go? Will media coverage about blogs go quietly into the good cyber space night? What is the next stop for news junky bloggers?
