Blogging as a literary form

What if in the future we thought of blogging as a literary form?

If we taught courses in public writing on blogs?

Good use links.

Building community.

Different voices.

Style.

What if we had blog writer’s retreats?

If we studied the kinds of tools that work best?

Connections with technology? (I would totally benefit from that.)

What if literary writing, like news writing, is going to be captured in silos like Facebook? Is this inevitable? A desirable outcome?

I was thinking — we have writers retreats for people who write plays, for poets, maybe song-writers? Is online writing a dead-end (I don’t think so) or will it be supported by traditions developed for other kinds of writing?
