The Power of the Blog

 

continued

Vacuum's subject material is a hodgepodge, but that's because Vielmetti sees the blog very much in the classical context: as a personal, yet very public, journal. A longtime notebook keeper, Vielmetti sees Vacuum mostly as just another way to record and archive his own thoughts--although it recently hit a traffic milestone, with one million total page views.

"I still like it best when it's more or less notes to myself, rather than trying to publish something for a large audience," Vielmetti says. "I'm not really chasing traffic. When it comes, it comes, but you can't really predict that."

Filling a niche

Only two years old when Ed Vielmetti logged on to his first Internet account, Ben Connor Barrie is not a witness to the birth of journal-style blogging but an active participant in its decline. He started just such a blog with a couple of friends while living in California in 2008, after graduating from Kalamazoo College. "It was pretty terrible because we had absolutely no focus," Barrie says.
