LOW HOLIDAY READERSHIP of mainstream media means few people will notice Irish blogs being mentioned in Sunday broadsheets this weekend. Adrian Weckler says, "Blogging came as close as it will ever do to taking off among ordinary people in 2006." Not impressed by the raft of waffling he sees in the blogosphere, Weckler surmises, "Ireland appears to be one of the last western countries without any quality, readable blogs, though there is a tiny amount of them (e.g., mulley.net) occasionally worth looking at."
And in the Sunday Tribune, Una Mullally spins a few paragraphs for Blogorrah, while suggesting "other Irish bloggers of note to watch out for in 2007 are Slugger O'Toole, Twenty Major, In Fact Ah and Blather." Right so, let's see who's standing up front at the Irish Blog Awards.
