Blogging as obsession

This is a really stupid NYT article, written by someone who obviously was assigned the story by an editor, and who had no previous experience with blogs. Yeesh. Could it be any more dismissive? If there is a hobby that millions of people participate in
"The number of bloggers has grown quickly, thanks to sites like, which makes it easy to set up a blog. Technorati, a blog-tracking service, has counted some 2.5 million blogs."
, doesn't that count for anything? The tone of this article reminds me of how early adopters to email/web surfing were compared to addictives because they spent time browsing web sites.

Can we get another metaphor please?
