    The fad of naming things a fad

    Now it's the turn of blogging. Yes, blogging, What I'm doing right now. It seems to be a fad because because a heretofore unheard of outfit has discovered that lots of people (at least, 1000 in their survey) sign up for a blogging service, and that's all they do for blogging. Big deal.
    That hasn't stopped Oliver Willies from talking about the deflation of the blog bubble and the register to declare most of us zombies.
    It's surprising to see how these people have understood the article. The study was done over a few thousand blogs, and then extrapolated to all blogs contained in the blogging services. It does not include, for instance, self-installed blogs, which have probably a much higher survival rate. Extrapolation is valid, but it's an extrapolation. You can't say "No less than a million of the 2.7 million weblogs surveyed had been abandoned after a day"; but "statiscally, it could be said that about a million of blogs have been abandoned after a day".
    But, in any case, so what? People in the Ryze blog network are also discussing about this, and asking the same question. The only thing this statistical figure says is that, when we hear things like 2 million new blogs in 6 months, we should actually hear "with just 1 million surviving". But it's still a million left of new blogs.
    So, the bubble has probably been punctured somehow, but it's just inflating a bit less quicker, and letting out just a tiny bit of air.

    That's exactly the point. No matter which one is the actual number, the fact is that it is big enough.

    The fad of naming things a fad is here. I want to show how can I make work more effective. Here are some effects which are showing essayshark review. If this fad naming and things are important then all the things are made more effective in some time.
