Rise of the Blogs!!!

The time for Los Angeles Sports blogs to take advantage is now, at a time where the LA Times is fading into oblivion. The latest hit on the Times is falling on Joel Stein. Stein wrote an article saying that he did not support our troops not only in Iraq, but ALL over the world. It is okay to state this opinion, but he is being shred apart because it turns out he knows nothing of the military. In 10 years, there will not be an LA Times, and blogs will have taken over. The mainstream newspapers will be t he New York Times and the Wall-Street Journal, neither of which have sections on teams outside of New York (the WSJ barely has any sports at all).

As the internet is on the rise (look at Google), so are blogs. They can be updated more often and stay more current than Newspapers, and they all specialize in what they do. Oftentimes Newspapers try to do to much by featuring too many sections, so the papers become watered down. The two papers who are successful while still carrying a big load are the New York Times and the Wall Stree Journal.

The only problem with blogging is that the income is sufficiently less than that of newspaper writing. So those of you with companies out there, stop putting ads in the LA Times, and instead put them into a blog. The LA Times will become non-existent and nobody will see your ads! Put these ads to a better use and give money to the bloggers!

What was this post about? Honestly, I just was stir-crazy from the lack of Dodger News as of late. Do not be surprised if you find any only slightly-Dodger-related posts.

    Dodgers SUCK! So does the LA Times. I wish they'd lose ciculation by the millions. But what other paper is there in town? Either way, Times SUCK!

    Gilbert from Whittier-

    If you ARE going to read the LA Times, read it online. That way you do not have to actually pay money to them, which will help them "lose ciculation by the millions."

    But there are even better news sites than the LA Times online, which are blogs. With the number of blogs out there, you can get a newspaper 5 times the size as the LA Times!
