Seriously though, the ‘blogging phenomenom’ is pretty overblown, no?

Well, when it hits the cover of BusinessWeek, it probably is. And when my company is doing it, it probably is. But then I consider how few people - to your point last week - know what RSS is or how to use it (notwithstanding that its lack of usefulness and usability). And I start to wonder. Over-hyped, sure. But there’s definitely something going on, right? Newspaper circulation is declining along with network viewership, yadda - meanwhile broadband and all that goes with it (including blogs) is burgeoning. And there’s still a large lack of awareness or participation re: blogs from the average person on the street. Hard to say if it adds up to anything concrete, but it’s definitely different than a few years ago. I defer to those that’ve blogged since then…but I’d be amazed if this turned out just to be a fad.
