Big Media is Listening

Or should I say reading. It’s not everyday that Blog Bloke is quoted by the mainstream media. So imagine my surprise when I noticed incoming traffic from CBS News today quoting my post about Sifry’s state of the blogosphere:

“Sifry’s data also shows the much-hyped divide between bloggers and the mainstream media may be artificial. By ranking bloggers’ links, the research shows “clearly, people (bloggers) are still paying a lot of attention to mainstream media stalwarts like The New York Times, CNN, and The Washington Post.” In fact, bloggers link to these sites about three times as often as they link to blogs like the popular Boing Boing.

Some bloggers are concerned about this trend. As Instabloke writes: “By encouraging bloggers to link to their news stories, traffic is being re-routed back again to the mainstream media websites. It’s a vicious cycle where bloggers are the obvious losers. They’ve effectively hijacked our new-found fame and it’s a very clever strategy when you think of it.”

I won’t let it go to my head (much ;-).
