Hockey Blogging Went Mainstream

Last week we mentioned this story in USA Hockey Magazine that was already on newsstands, but not yet on the internet.  Now it’s available online.

From Ricki Dugdale at USA Hockey Magazine:

Today’s bloggers are gaining acceptance among mainstream media, in part because professional journalists have learned that if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

The rising popularity of blogs has forced mainstream media to re-evaluate which direction coverage is heading in the near future as fingers stay glued to the keyboard and eyes stay fixed on a computer screen.

“I think [blogging] sort of changed how we approached coverage of events,” said Kevin Allen, president of the Professional Writer’s Association and USA Today’s hockey writer. “Instead of just reporting what happened in the news we are interpreting it quickly, and we have been forced to do it by the amateur bloggers.”
