End-of-year Report

As I head into the holiday season, I suspect that my time will be limited for blogging here so I wanted to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays) and a Happy New Year!

This has been a ground-breaking year for this blog. Readership is nearly five times what it was last year and I now have a loyal readership of around 40 people every day. While many of my co-workers and friends still consider blogging to be a bit nerdy, I think many have come to except the reality that blogging has changed the face of journalism this year.

So what next? Well, in the blogging world next year I predict Podcasting will explode in popularity as iPod prices drop and more people jump on the bandwagon of downloading RSS feeds.

Also, I think video and photos will take on new popularity as they are integrated into RSS feeds more readily.

Of course, if you want to know the latest, continue to visit Minnesota Public Relations Blog.

Thanks for your support and don't forget to click on the Google links to the right. It's the only way this site makes any money. Have a happy holiday season.
