sell when Business Week’s cover says buy
Now that blogs are in the cover of Business Week, you can safely say two things – blogs have gone mainstream, and blogs are over.

Business Week cover means that companies will pay attention to blogs, hire consultants who at best are *dumb* in the ways of blogging, spend millions of dollars, make some people rich and eat into the ever shrinking marketing budgets.
hire me: I’m a savvy blog consultant

The reality is, blogging is hard […]. It’s like figure skating- it looks easy, but it isn’t.
Expect a corporate backlash against blogging in about six months, once all the meatpuppets who read the recent Businessweek front-pager start finding this out the hard way.
I agree about the corporate backlash.
