OJR has a story in which ombudsmen lament over how annoying bloggers and email are to people trying to manage a newspaper. My favorite:
Tony Marcano: “I think the reputation of blogs overall is hurt by the overabundance of self-referential, narcissistic sites that exist for little reason other than to draw attention to the blogger.”
Hey Jeff, Nick and Xeni what do you think about that quote? I mean do you think that we’re self-referential? I don’t, I mean how often do we link to each other like once a month?!? Anyway, write me back on your blog and make sure you link to this entry. I’ll post some fake comments below praising all of us to make this seem like a bigger story.
