Trying to keep it quick tonight. Working on something for Epic Carnival.
Oh Word, one of my favorite hip-hop blogs, shed some light on the state of hip-hop blogging. Definitely worth checking out.
Oh Word's interview.
There are a lot of places in this interview where you can replace "hip-hop" with "sports" and the answers are still relevant.
My favorite response:
17. Do you think there should be more or less hiphop blogs?
I think there should be more bloggers reading and responding to other people’s hip-hop blogs and acting under the assumption that they’re not the only information source for their audience. There’s a lot of echoing going on in the blog world and it’s troubling. Too much information and not enough intelligence.
Again, substitute "hip-hop" with "sports" and I totally agree.
