Five Blogospheres in One Blogiverse

Steven Streight at Blog Core Values says there are 5 Blogospheres in One Blogiverse.
(1.) Social Connection Youth IM-Blogosphere: Xanga, LiveJournal, MySpace, etc.

(2.) Mature Personal-Hobby-Family Blogosphere

(3.) Business-Marketing-PR-CEO-Corporate Blogosphere

(4.) Meta Blogosphere (Blog Consultants, Blogologists, Blog Metric Analysts, Blog Trackers, Blog Content Syndicaters/Aggregators, Blog Services, Blogging Tool Providers, Blog Hosts, Blog Directories, etc.)

(5.) Professional/Military/Educational Blogosphere

I agree. I've had a Live Journal account since 1999. It's a much more social place than the rest of the blogosphere. I moved to Blogger a couple of years ago, because it was more "blog like."

Each kind of blog service has it's place. Diversity is a good thing.
